  1. Clinton Gutherson (Parramatta Eels)

Scored a double and ran for 150 run metres as the Eels look set to return to the finals arena next month.

  1. Reuben Garrick (Manly Warringah Sea Eagles)

Scored two tries and kicked two goals in Manly’s late surge against the Warriors, but it ended up being too little too late for the Away side.

  1. Latrell Mitchell (Sydney Roosters)

Scored a try and kicked three goals as Easts went on to defeat Canberra by four points. It was Latrell’s efforts off the ball were just as good with the Centre finishing the game on a total of 17 tackles.

  1. Will Hopoate (Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs)

Ran for 140 run metres and broke eight tackles against a struggling Wests Tigers side. Also finished with a total of 10 tackles and an offload to his name.

  1. Ken Maumalo (New Zealand Warriors)

Ran for 240 run metres on his way to a try double in an impressive victory over a soaring Manly side.

  1. Cameron Munster (Melbourne Storm)

Scored a try and set up another in a performance which shows why the 24-year-old is regarded as the best five-eighth in the game.

  1. Nathan Cleary (Penrith Panthers)

Steered his side to a win and the Panthers are now one game closer to finals footy. Scored a try and set up two others in a Man of the Match performance.

  1. Payne Haas (Brisbane Broncos)

Man of the Match in a dour affair. The 19-year-old behemoth ran for 236 metres with ball in hand and completed 30 tackles at an effective tackle efficiency of 100 percent.

  1. Cameron Smith (Melbourne Storm)

Controlled the contest from the first minute through to the 80th, as he does. Recorded two line break assists, a try assist, an offload, five goals and 42 tackles as his side toppled a struggling South Sydney side.

  1. Paul Vaughan (St. George Illawarra Dragons)

Ran for a whopping 237 run metres, completed 34 tackles and scored a try. All in a days work for the representative forward.

  1. Josh Jackson (Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs)

The heart and soul of the Bulldogs pack. The former New South Wales representative scored a try, ran for 110 metres with ball in hand and completed 40 tackles.

  1. John Bateman (Canberra Raiders)

The best backrower in the game this season continues to lift another gear. Was credited with a try assist, 35 tackles and 115 run metres as the Raiders came agonisingly close to knocking off last years premiers in what was the game of the round.

  1. Victor Radley (Sydney Roosters)

Back in his preferred position over the past several weeks, Victor Radley has shown the form which saw him touted a possible State of Origin bolter earlier in the season. Scored a try, made 50 tackles and ran for 110 metres.

Interchange:

  1. Angus Crichton (Sydney Roosters)
  2. Chanel Harris-Tavita (New Zealand Warriors)
  3. James Tedesco (Sydney Roosters)
  4. Mitchell Moses (Parramatta Eels)

18th Man: Addin Fonua-Blake (Manly Warringah Sea Eagles)

  1. What!!!! No overrated Cam Murray three weeks running, while Victor Radley back at lock, is showing Johns why he will play for Australia and not the pint size Murray plays. Fantastic Stuff by Rads who is starting to peak at the right time of the year.

  2. Power Rankings are going to really hurt Dan this week. Lets see, how can we possibly deny the Storm 1st place ?????, I know, we can bump the Roosters up with some excuse.

  3. Surprise surprise,
    No Darius again this week after:
    1 run- 1 metre
    No assist whatsoever
    When is Wayne going to make the call for him. Please Wayne.
