John Bateman continues to sparkle in the NRL - and set-up a Fox Sports' 'try of the week' contender last weekend!

The ex-Wigan forward was on the losing side as Canberra went down 22-10 at home to Melbourne Storm in round two.

But Bateman - who was widely praised for his effort on debut - made an impression by conjuring up a try for Jarrod Croker.

The England forward received the ball 15m from his own line on the right edge, crabbed to the left on a jinking, lateral run and fed Croker with a basketball pass.

And broadcasters Fox picked it as one of their four 'try of the week' contenders, which is voted for by fans.
