Overnight, Bernard Lewis of the Sydney Roosters has become a hero for his team in the National Rugby League. This Torres Strait Islander can be best remembered as the one with fast feet and bleached blond curls, at least during the early stages of the Auckland Nines. But, by the end of the Auckland Nines, Bernard Lewis was an unlikely hero for the Sydney Roosters.
Who would have expected this teen to play a key role in the match? None!
But, for Lewis, it is a dream come true, to be playing with the team that he grew up watching. Not only playing the game well, with the rest of the team, Bernard Lewis also won the grand final for the Sydney Roosters.
