Cameron Munster has moved himself back to the top of Zero Tackle's NRL MVP race after 22 rounds with a perfect performance against the Penrith Panthers on Thursday evening.

James Tedesco couldn't register a single point as teammates stood up to deliver the Roosters a win in his 200th NRL game, and it has ultimately cost him top spot in the MVP race - for now.

The race is a close one between the two stars with just three weeks to play.

A handful of other players can still win the award for this season, with Joseph Tapine's absence hurting his chances of being the first forward to win the award at the end of the season.

He sits third, but still within 20 votes, while Ben Hunt, Nicho Hynes and Dylan Edwards are the other players still in with a mathematical chance of winning this year's award, with a maximum of 60 votes left to claim.

In terms of top ten running, Payne Haas was the only player who sneaks in this week on the back of recording ten votes in Brisbane's victory over the Newcastle Knights.

Here are all the Round 22 votes.

Penrith Panthers vs Melbourne Storm

The Penrith Panthers have been as close to unbeatable as you can get, however, they were finally upended on Thursday by the Storm, with injuries and suspensions catching up with them. It was an excellent return to form for the Storm though as they held the Panthers to nil for the first time in seven years. Cameron Munster was the pick of the bunch in a complete team effort.

New Zealand Warriors vs Canterbury Bulldogs

The Warriors' return to Auckland has brought with it some improved performances, and now two from three victories. Running up 40 on the Bulldogs was a positive note for the club, as Reece Walsh and Tohu Harris led the way in a blistering performance that will have Canterbury scrambling to turn it around and stay out of the bottom four over the final three weeks of the season.

Parramatta Eels vs South Sydney Rabbitohs

The second team to be held to nil this weekend were the Eels. Their inconsistency continues to stagger, with Brad Arthur simply unable to get his team playing strong football on a week-to-week basis. The Rabbitohs have really found their groove though and were superb in the 26-0 win, with Latrell Mitchell and Cameron Murray leading the way.

Sydney Roosters vs North Queensland Cowboys

At full strength, the Roosters have to be a smokey to cause some chaos in September, even from the bottom half of the top eight. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Matt Lodge made all the difference in the middle third as they beat the second-placed Cowboys, while Sam Verrills played one of the best games of his career.

Wests Tigers vs Cronulla Sharks

The Tigers were simply no match for the Sharks in Tamworth on Saturday evening, with the black, white and blue drawing level on the ladder with the Cowboys and now pushing for a home final in Week 1. Nicho Hynes was simply phenomenal in leading them through the contest.

Brisbane Broncos vs Newcastle Knights

The Broncos were not anywhere near their best on Saturday, but it was still more than enough to get the job done against a poor Newcastle Knights outfit. Te Maire Martin was the star of the show at fullback in a unanimous man of the match performance.

Canberra Raiders vs St George Illawarra Dragons

The Raiders and Dragons had another finish in controversial circumstances, this time favouring the Green Machine who came away with the two points. Talatau Amone was among the best players on field despite playing for the losing side, while Xavier Savage was the best for the winners.

Gold Coast Titans vs Manly Sea Eagles

Sunday was supposed to keep the Sea Eagles in the finals hunt. Instead, it ended their chances as the Titans played arguably their best game of the season, with AJ Brimson, Beau Fermor and David Fifita all lighting the Sea Eagles up in an attacking display of dominance.
