The 22 BEAST_old
Quote from NRL.com
Omar Slaimankhel became the first Warriors player to score four tries in a Toyota Cup game when his team smashed Manly on Saturday - and that is just the start of the story! Slaimankhel's family walked for a week to escape war-torn Afghanistan for Pakistan; they arrived in New Zealand when Omar was three.
With a family background in weightlifting and athletics, Omar pursued rugby union before "stumbling" into league when he saw a Warriors junior development squad training and made some inquiries. It's a long way from Afghanistan to Brookvale, but the youngster made the world seem a small place as he raced away for try after try against the Eagles.
Watching this guy in the Toyota cup has been refreshing, a winger whos not big.
He has carved up recently.
