There might not be many spectators in the background, but Newtown Jets winger Edrick Lee showed all the poise and athleticism of a top-class NRL player in scoring this try right on half-time last Sunday. Five-eighth Kyle Flanagan had put the perfectly-flighted kick into the corner for Edrick to leap for and catch. Photo: Mario Facchini (MAF Photography)
