July 2, 2022 7:44 am

Fiji Bati and Panthers prop Apisai Koroisau returned from his State of Origin stint in style after sealing the win in the Panthers 26-18 win over Roosters last night.

Koroisau dived between Victory Radley and James Tedesco after a quick play-the-ball by Penrith and New Zealand prop James Fisher-Harris to score in the 73rd minute.

He was also instrumental in helping put Fiji-born Viliame Kikau over from close range to give the premiers a 14-6 lead at the interval.
