“Sure sex is good, but have you ever watched Josh Addo-Carr score 6 tries in a match?” – how social media reacted to Josh Addo-Carr breaking NRL record

Melbourne winger Josh Addo-Carr cemented his place in the history books today, crossing for six tries – the first time this feat has ever been achieved in the NRL.

Not since Newtown’s Jack Troy in 1950 had a player crossed the line for six tries in a game and no player in Storm history had scored more than four tries in a match, a tally Addo-Carr had notched by half-time. The winger brought up his fifth in the 67th minute and then made in the 72nd minute as Melbourne racked up the half-century.

But, just how did social media react to the record-breaking day?

One Twitter user hailed the six-try performance of Addo-Carr, but also the Melbourne effort as a whole.

Another used humour and a throwback to try and compete with the winger.

Someone hailed Addo-Carr’s humble attitude after the game too.

Another couldn’t believe that South Sydney had let the flying winger leave the club.

However, a different Twitter user couldn’t believe that Addo-Carr will be swapping Melbourne for Canterbury in 2022.

Someone even compared Addo-Carr to the whole Bulldogs side.

One hilariously compared the winger’s exploits to those people engage in in the bedroom.

Another compared Addo-Carr to other “try-scoring freaks.”
