FINALS Week One, 9-11 September 2005
Week one of the 2005 NRL Finals series kicked off in spectacular style with the Wests Tigers blowing away the Cowboys to the tune of 50-6 at Telstra Stadium. The result had statisticians looking back over 60 years through the record books for a bigger semi-final thrashing. Brett Hodgson was the talk of the town with a record-breaking personal tally of 30 points, the most scored by a player in NRL finals history. Hodgson bagged a hat trick of tries and kicked nine goals from nine attempts, breaking his own club record for points scored in a match.
THE last round of this year?s NRL regular season is over, but boy do we have another cracking team! There were some real stand-outs over the weekend and the full results for the season can be found at Monday?s Expert. For now, please form a guard of honour as our boys run out for the last time.
