Kearney: Nightingale A Consistent Performer

St George Illawarra winger Jason Nightingale recent performances have earned him praise from New Zealand Head Coach Stephen Kearney.

The Dragons are currently perched atop the NRL ladder after three rounds which have seen the Red V unbeaten.

Nightingale (Kiwi 747) has been instrumental in that great start to the season and helped lead the way again in their latest 14-12 victory over the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.

He scored his first try of the season and ran for a game-high 181 metres.  

“For Jason, it’s probably been a cumulative thing, along with the Dragon’s unbeaten run,” said Kearney.

“He’s been a really consistent performer and was again against the Shark, with his numbers and what he and Brett Morris are doing for their team.”
