Robertson’s Nathan Hindmarsh has continued his scintillating form as an Australian Kangaroo, after bagging two tries in the team’s round match against Russia.
It has been a dream start for the 21 year old from the Parramatta Club, who only boasts three caps as a Kangaroo.
Hindmarsh seems to have settled any nerves, as he told the News on Friday after his first game against Fiji.
“I was very nervous before the game, the opportunity to represent Australia has come to me a little earlier in my career than expected,” he said.
“But I settled down pretty early in the game and enjoyed the experience.”
In fact Hindmarsh’s Australian representative honours are his first, revealing his hasty rise to the top of the competition.
The tries add to his try on debut against Fiji on Friday morning and cement his role in the green and gold.
Australia scored a record 110-4 win in the World Cup match against Russia in Hull, a score which featured 19 tries.
It was also a memorable game for Ryan Girdler who shattered the Australian rugby league point scoring record by amassing 46 points with three tries and 17 goals.
Australia remains undefeated in the World Cup with three wins and only 14 points scored against them so far.
Meanwhile New Zealand is nestled comfortably at the top of the Group 2 ladder, the only team likely to threaten the Australians in the World Cup.
