The Auckland Nines tournament is underway in New Zealand, as the top NRL squads try their hand at the smaller, faster variety of rugby league. It’s been a good watch all day, as the format accentuates all the things that make the down-under rugby variant a more enjoyable casual watch; here’s Warriors halfback Shaun Johnson turning a rugby league variety of the pick-six; we dig his juke move at the end to find the “bonus zone” that awards an extra point for the try. (Warriors beat the Bulldogs 34-8. Poor Tony Williams.)
