  1. Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad (Canberra Raiders)

Continues an impressive break out season with a try double and 218 run metres against a lacklustre St. George Illawarra side.

  1. Brian To’o (Penrith Panthers)

The spark the Panthers needed in their backline. A spectacular finisher, To’o crossed over for two tries in his side’s biggest win this season.

  1. Brad Takairangi (Parramatta Eels)

Scored the first hattrick of his NRL career as his side downed the Wests Tigers in Benji Marshall’s 300th NRL appearance.

  1. Jarrod Croker (Canberra Raiders)

Became the club’s all-time leading try scorer in his side’s win over the weekend. The Canberra captain was also credited with a try save and a try assist.

  1. Shaun Kenny-Dowall (Newcastle Knights)

Scored a double, broke a whopping 14 tackles and ran for 170 run metres in a solid performance and earns a spot in our team of the week despite his team going down in dramatic fashion at the hands of the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs.

  1. Cameron Munster (Melbourne Storm)

Scored a try and set up another as the Storm recorded win number 14 of the season in what was Cameron Smith’s 400th game as a top-flight player.

  1. Jake Clifford (North Queensland Cowboys)

Scored a try and kicked the match-winning field goal as the Cowboys rookie outplayed representative duo Luke Keary and Cooper Cronk.

  1. Payne Haas (Brisbane Broncos)

The best rookie forward since Jason Taumalolo. The hustling front rower crossed for an early try, completed over 40 tackles and finished the game with 201 run metres.

  1. Cameron Smith (Melbourne Storm)

Was everywhere as he attempted to leave the field a winner in his record-breaking 400th NRL appearance. Earnt a try assist, ran for 100 metres from dummy-half and completed 37 tackles.

  1. Jesse Bromwich (Melbourne Storm)

Ran for an impressive 215 run metres in his 48-minute stint. Teammate Nelson Asofa-Solomona was also impressive, gaining 170 run metres in his 43-minute stint.

  1. Curtis Sironen (Manly Warringah Sea Eagles)

Scored a try, broke the line twice, completed 28 tackles – breaking through seven of the opposition’s attempts in the process – and ran for 200 run metres.

  1. John Bateman (Canberra Raiders)

Continues to emerge as one of the game’s leading backrowers. Led the way for his side once again, completing 40 tackles and running for over 100 run metres.

  1. Jason Taumalolo (North Queensland Cowboys)

Worth every cent as he continues to set unprecedented figures. Ran for 181 metres, broke five tackles and broke through five of the oppositions’ attempts.

Interchange:

  1. Will Hopoate (Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs)
  2. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (New Zealand Warriors)
  3. Dylan Edwards (Penrith Panthers)
  4. Mitch Moses (Parramatta Eels)

18th Man: Adam Reynolds (South Sydney Rabbitohs)

  1. Cameron Smith in his 400th game was unbelievable brilliant. What an amazingly talented footballer still, after all those seasons since his debut. Surely this man is an immortal for certain.
