Social media has gone into a frenzy after Nathan Friend's back flip pass led to one of the tries of the year in the Warriors' 28-14 win over Melbourne Storm.

Andrew Voss on commentary said it "may be one of the greatest pieces of gymnastics rugby league you'll ever see" and the pictures put into perspective how remarkable Friend's pass really was.

Friend's pass has gone viral all around the world with BBC Sport's parody account, BBC Sporf, tweeting it during their coverage of the men's final at Wimbledon. It seems even the Aussies are impressed too - least of all Mr Voss.

Since last night's game Nathan Friend has tweeted seven times from his own account and retweeted 14 separate links to his pass and who can blame him? It was one of the most inspirational pieces of instinctive play you'll ever see on a sports field.


Sports Illustrated tweeted a link to their 1.13million followers with a typically American caption that led to a "score for the Warriors.

Nathan Friend with the greatest try assist of all time?!?!
