Season Review | Jorge Taufua
A season plagued by injury saw Jorge Taufua play just 16 games in 2014.
Having missed the opening five rounds with a shoulder injury sustained in a pre-season trial match, Taufua returned to the side without missing a beat.
The damaging winger crossed the line seven times in his first five games to earn a call up into the City Origin camp.
His destructive ball running out of dummy half is regarded as one of the best in the competition. Renowned for his ability to find the try line, Taufua scored 10 tries and averaged 149 metres this season.
The combination formed with centre Steve Matai has proved a difficult assignment for opposition teams to defend.
Between the pair, they’ve scored 23 tries this season, and they have their inside men to thank for it, in particular fullback Brett Stewart, who mastered the sweeping move in 2014.
Taufua notched up his 50th NRL game for the maroon and white in round six.
