Twal's elusive try still in the pipeline

Much of the week surrounding #Twaly100 revolved around the possibility of the big front-rower getting over for his first NRL try, but it just wasn’t to be for the Lebanese international. 

Twal’s performance against Canterbury-Bankstown, however, was reflective of what has made him such a valuable member of Wests Tigers’ playing group since he joined the club in 2017. 

Entering the field in the 18th minute, he went on to make 116 metres with ball in hand, in just 47 minutes.

Those attacking stats, however, almost pale in comparison to his freakish defensive efforts, making 36 tackles and missing zero.

Stat-lines like these have become commonplace for Twal over his 100-game career, with his tackle efficiency record sitting at a remarkable 98%. 

 

Signing off from #Twaly100 🎉

After a stint off the field, the middle forward re-entered the fray against the Bulldogs with eight minutes to go, before being taken off for a HIA shortly after. 

For the thousands of fans willing Twaly to score, it was sadly not to be. But his 100th game, and the night as a whole, was a damn good night to remember.
