Gower: Happy to Help Bring up a Milestone
Dyldam Parramatta Eels second-rower David Gower has put down Saturday night's 18-10 win over the Raiders to persistence, as the Blue and Gold overcame errors and frustration to seal the game with a 100th career try to fullback Jarryd Hayne.
Gower was the man who passed to Hayne to score in the second half and put the Eels in front for the first time in the game, making Jarryd Hayne the third Eel in history - after Brett Kenny and luke Burt - to score 100 tries for the Blue and Gold.
"It had been a frustrating game," Gower said.
"We had a lot of dropped ball, we were giving away a lot of penalties. [There were] a lot of disallowed tries, we got held up a couple of times."
"Then I just heard the big fella (Jarryd Hayne) screaming he wanted the ball. They were a little bit staggered in defence, and the big man went through and way too quick. I was happy to deliver for the big boy to get his 100th try and get the win!"
