WATCH: NRL hooker manages to set up a try with your bog standard backflip pass

Friend found himself going arse over elbows as he latched onto a crossfield pass against the Melbourne Storm but, ever the believer, he somehow managed to summon the composure to pick out a pass to a teammate.

The phase continued and four passes later, Tuimoala Lolohea crossed for a try but all the post-match discussion was on the incredible athleticism displayed by Friend in the 57th minute.

WOW!
