  1. James Tedesco (Sydney Roosters)

The best player in the world continues to soar at full flight. Added two try assists and a try of his own to his ever-growing season tally.

  1. Kyle Feldt (North Queensland Cowboys)

A shining light in an otherwise tainted season for the Townsville based club. Scored two tries, broke 11 tackles and ran for 202 run metres in a performance which has State of Origin written all over it.

  1. Will Hopoate (Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs)

As above, a standout performer in a disappointing season for his club. Scored a try, broke 10 tackles and ran for 263 run metres.

  1. Tom Opacic (North Queensland Cowboys)

Has formed a strong combination with Kyle Feldt, which looks set to continue into the long term. Set up two tries for his wing partner whilst breaking six tackles of his own.

  1. David Nofoaluma (Wests Tigers)

Scored a hattrick off the back of some Benji brilliance in Wests big win over Newcastle which keeps the Tigers season alive.

  1. Benji Marshall (Wests Tigers)

Having last seen Benji at his absolute best way back in 2012, it’s been a rugby league fan’s dream come true with the 34-year-old winding back the clock this season. The 300-gamer recorded four try assists, the most he’s achieved in a game since 2015.

  1. Luke Brooks (Wests Tigers)

Was as brilliant with the boot as he was ball in hand. Led the way for the Tigers in their 42-point win over the Knights, setting up two tries, and earing 746 metres of yardage (153 run metres & 593 kick metres).

  1. Payne Haas (Brisbane Broncos)

The duo of Payne Haas and David Fifita kept the Broncos in the contest against Souths, a team who would have run rampant over the Broncos if the two aforementioned weren’t there to hold the fort. 19-year-old Haas added another 200-metre game to his tally and added to his tackle break tally with six.

  1. Damien Cook (South Sydney Rabbitohs)

Was back to his best against Brisbane with a try and 131 run metres from dummy-half.

  1. Andrew Fifita (Cronulla Sharks)

Another player back to his best after several weeks where he was not up to standards. Ran for 200 metres and completed 23 tackles against a big New Zealand pack.

  1. David Fifita (Brisbane Broncos)

A player to build a team around for years to come. The other baby Bronco in Brisbane’s pack continues to get better, scoring two tries and breaking a whopping 17 tackles against one of the better packs in the competition.

  1. Kenny Bromwich (Melbourne Storm)

The under-rated Bromwich continues a career-best season with another try and try assist in a 16-point victory over the Gold Coast Titans.

  1. Jason Taumalolo (North Queensland Cowboys)

Played through a severe foot injury to seal the deal for the Cowboys with a try in the 71st minute.

Interchange:

  1. Jake Trbojevic (Manly Warringah Sea Eagles)
  2. Cooper Cronk (Sydney Roosters)
  3. Jarrod Croker (Canberra Raiders)
  4. Ryan Papenhuyzen (Melbourne Storm)

18th Man: Josh Jackson (Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs)
