Well rested, Tedesco returned to first grade with a huge performance. The games most in-form player scored a try, saved another and broke 14 tackles on his way to 290 run metres.
- Brian To’o (Penrith Panthers)
Bagged a second double in as many weeks as he continues to impress with his acrobatic finishes.
- Latrell Mitchell (Sydney Roosters)

In his best performance in first grade to date, the makeshift centre crossed for two tries, broke eight tackles and ran for 145 run metres.

Scored the first hattrick of his career in a high scoring affair against Parramatta as the St. George junior continues to be one of the biggest surprise packets to come out of season 2019.
- James Maloney (Penrith Panthers)
Set up three tries in Penrith’s seventh straight victory.
- Daly Cherry-Evans (Manly Warringah Sea Eagles)

Was the best in a losing side against the Warriors. Scored a try, set up another and completed 41 tackles in a strong performance.
- Cameron Murray (South Sydney Rabbitohs)
Scored the match-winner before setting up a try that sealed the deal just minutes later, Cameron Murray becomes the man to finally put an end to Jason Taumalolo’s reign as lock of the week.
- Jazz Tevaga (New Zealand Warriors)
- Tom Trbojevic (Manly Warringah Sea Eagles)
