Deputy Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly offers to meet WA Premier Mark McGowan amid coronavirus border closure feud

  Deputy Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly offers to meet WA Premier Mark McGowan amid coronavirus border closure feud Deputy Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly says he is ready to meet the WA Premier "any time" after Mark McGowan said he did not know who he was amid an ongoing feud between state premiers over border closures. Professor Kelly was asked whether he thought, given Mr McGowan's comments, state premiers were taking on board the advice of the national health body put together to advise leaders during the coronavirus pandemic."So, just to let Mr McGowan know, I'm a proud West Australian," he said with a smile."I grew up in that state, so I hope I'll be claimed.

We'll stop short of the Michael Jordan references, but the Titans' Brian Kelly has brought the ankle breaker to the NRL.

The NRL's return has had league fans in raptures, with the new six again rule and one-referee system offering up a high octane brand of footy in the competition's first game since the coronavirus layoff on Thursday between the Eels and Broncos.

And the attacking flare has carried over into the Friday night clash between the Cowboys and Titans, with Kelly's 14th minute four-pointer the clear highlight.

Kelly, who was a late inclusion for the Gold Coast in their season re-opener against the Cowboys, pulled of the miraculous left-side try to level scores 6-6, fooling about three defenders on the way.

With Gold Coast weathering an early onslaught and finally getting into position for an assault, a shift out to the left side on the 5th tackle looked to have been nullified by the Cowboys sliding defence.

But as Kelly looks to be jammed against the sidelines by three defenders, the former Sea Eagle turns and spins, pivoting back towards the sideline and leaving Kyle Fedlt clutching at thin air to run in and score.

Watch the try here:

Justin Holbrook's Titans conceded the first try after being pulled up with a six-again ruling, with Ben Hampton the recipient off a clean Cowboys shift out to the left to score in the 6th minute.

Gold Coast could've been down more, and a strong defensive sequence helped establish the field position that created the Kelly to level scores.

North Queensland would score again down the left side however, with a Justin Onie'll try in the 23rd minute and a penalty goal on the stroke of half-time setting up a 14-6 for Paul Green's side going into the break.
