Rivals one minute, friends the next

It’s finals time!! To celebrate the end of the regular NRL season, we’re taking a look back at some of its memorable moments.

Two teams to watch over the weekend are the hungry Sharks and resilient Titans.

The round 21 clash between the Gold Coast Titans and Cronulla Sharks was one of the most intense games of the season.

In a tense game where both sides flexed their muscles in attack and defence, the two teams couldn’t be separated after 90 minutes of footy.

James Maloney also had a tough time separating himself from Konrad Hurrell (aka Koni), who gave him a hug that was too good for the cameras to ignore.

Since his start with the New Zealand Warriors, Koni has been a personality that stood out in rugby league.

Like many league players, Koni is a fierce competitor on the field, but clearly he doesn’t let that affect his lighter side.

Koni’s gesture reminds us that even the most hardened rugby league players don’t take their on-field rivalries so seriously.

Junior rugby league players could learn from Koni’s example – be a lover, not a fighter!

I mean who could say no to a hug like that?
