After trying to milk penalties against the Eels last night, Ryan Papenhuyzen nominated for three Emmy’s.

As the wet weather slowed down their regular blitzkrieg style play, the Melbourne Storm showed just why they’re the reigning Premiers by adding another dimension to their play – acting. When they couldn’t get across the try-line, their performance towards milking penalties was so convincing that fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen has already been nominated for three Emmy’s. Coach Craig Bellamy couldn’t be prouder.

“When he tried to milk that crusher tackle, it was like I was watching a young Chris Hemsworth. That boy can really act!” said proud as punch coach, Craig Bellamy.

Ryan’s range did not just contain a phantom crusher tackle, as he almost got a penalty when he headbutted Shaun Lane’s knee and then tried to play the victim.

“I’m pretty sure that was the moment that the Emmy’s went, ‘Yep. This guy has the acting chops we’re looking for,” remarked Bellamy.

Word is the Emmy’s aren’t the only ones with their eyes on Pap’s thespian abilities, as professional soccer teams in both England and Germany have expressed an interest in his injury-faking skills.

With the next Emmy’s not happening until 2022, and the NRL still with almost a full season left, one thing is for sure – there’s still plenty of time for Papenhuyzen to bung on more penalty-milking injuries.
