It's been a long time between tries for Billy Slater, who hadn't crossed the line since Round 9, 2015.

A horror run with injuries had riddled Slater's last year and a bit, but he looked back to his best this afternoon, switching it on and breaking the drought.

Slater crossed just after half time for his first try in 721 days. Check out the video below.

Cameron Smith kicked the goal to equal Jason Taylor on 942 career goals...and then Slater was over again.

 This gave Smith the kick for outright leadership on the career goals table, and of course, he nailed it.
