Bellamy blown away by Addo-Carr try
After nearly 40 years of being involved in the game at the highest level, Craig Bellamy admits he cannot think of a better try than Josh Addo-Carr's on Wednesday night.
The Foxx produced one of the most electrifying plays you will ever see in the first half of Storm's rampant 50-10 win over the Warriors on ANZAC Day.
The 22-year-old collected the ball on his own 30m line, broke through four would-be tacklers before starring straight at Warriors fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and using the remaining 40 metres to round him and score spectacularly in the corner.
It sent the sold-out crowd at AAMI Park into an absolute frenzy and was an effort that will be hard to top for try of the season.
Even the coach could not quite believe what he had just seen.
"I cannot remember the last time I saw someone score a try like that," Craig Bellamy said.
"He got ankle tapped and pushed a couple of times, was off balance and to be able to regain his balance three times and actually go around Roger, it has been a long time since I've seen a try like that scored."
"It was one hell of a try."
The skipper was equally impressive with Addo-Carr's effort, though it is dawning on Cameron Smith that as Queensland skipper, he may well be chasing the Foxx as opposed to celebrating with him when the State of Origin series rolls around next month.
"It is a bit scary isn't it?" Smith said.
"You wouldn't like to see him get the ball in open space. He is a wonderful player Joshy.
"He was fantastic last year and has continued that again this year. The ability that he has in open space just to get points for us and find points for us.
"If he gets the opportunity to play for the Blues, that is a scary thought for Queensland."
