It looks like Daniel Tupou has wings.
The big winger raced in and leapt high to get his first try against the Canberra Raiders.
Mitchell Pearce delivered a great kick and the giant winger did it again. It’s something you see often from Tupou.
With his height and vertical leap, opposing defenders have little chance. Tupou’s unusual combination of speed, strength and height is so hard to stop.
Canberra’s Jordan Rapana, who Tupou leapt over, will be having nightmares. The try put the Sydney Roosters 28-6 in front.
Just after half-time the Roosters have scored two tries in 10 minutes. This could get ugly for the Raiders.
They look out of their feet and with no ideas against a rampant opponent. It hasn’t been a happy time for Ricky Stuart against his old club.
