Holloway re-writes history for Waratahs

RUGBY UNION: Former Yamba Buccaneer Jed Holloway has made history for the NSW Waratahs during their 30-26 loss against defending champions the Highlanders.

Never before in the 134-year history of NSW rugby has a substitute come on in a top grade clash and scored a hat-trick of tries.

What is even more incredible for the former Palmers Island resident is that he did it in only 16 minutes.

Holloway entered the match in the 56th minute, replacing long-time hero Wycliff Palu and crossed the line within 60 seconds on his second touch of the football.

He then scored again in the 67th and 72nd minutes to almost swing the match back in the favour of the Waratahs.

It was an effort against all odds with the Waratahs trailing 30-0 when Holloway got his first touch of the football.
