Scored a try and set up another in his best performance in the Hunter Valley to date.

Backing up from a near man of the match performance for the Blues in State of Origin Game II, James Maloney recorded two try assists and kicked the match-winning field goal against the Warriors.

  1. David Klemmer (Newcastle Knights)

Ran for 205 running metres and completed 42 tackles at an effective tackle rate of 100 per cent.

  1. Cameron Smith (Melbourne Storm)

Got his side home against the Sydney Roosters in a top of the table clash.

  1. Jason Taumalolo (North Queensland Cowboys)
