IT’S a try- scor­ing drought which has sud­denly turned into a tor­ren­tial mon­soon.

But af­ter over­com­ing the long­est stretch with­out a try in his ca- reer in em­phatic style, Cow­boys winger Kyle Feldt ( pic­tured) never lost be­lief he’d get his mojo back. The right winger failed to cross the stripe in the first nine rounds but has scored eight tries in the last eight games. Bizarrely his com­pan­ion on the Cow­boys right edge, Justin O’Neill, is yet to score a try this year but Feldt is feast­ing on the lead- up work by the cen­tre and fel­low rep­re­sen­ta­tive star Michael Mor­gan. The 25year- old re­vealed ear­lier this sea­son con­tract ne­go­ti­a­tions af­fected his early sea­son form, but his per­for­mance has sky­rock­eted since ink­ing a three- year deal.

“If I got one they were al­ways go­ing to start com­ing, so I wasn’t too wor­ried,” Feldt said. “I’m a winger. All I do is stand out there, catch the ball and put it down.” That self as­sess­ment is clearly a mod­est one as the Cow­boys rely heav­ily on his high workrate out of the dan­ger zone.
