Scored 20-points in Manly’s upset victory over the Titans.

Continues to impress whilst playing outside of his preferred position of five-eighth. Scored a try – his third in as many weeks – and recorded two linebreaks.

At his best during Saturday’s nail-biter against Wests. Scored a try, completed 16 tackles (100% efficiency) and ran for over 150 metres with ball-in-hand.

Broke through 15 tackle attempts on his way to a mammoth 272 run metres.

The most improved player in the competition has cemented himself a starting spot in the Eels back row following an impressive string of performances over the past month. Against Canberra the 22-year-old scored a double and ran for over 150 metres with ball in hand.

Has been Newcastle’s most consistent forward this season and put in another impressive display against Cronulla over the weekend. Completed 48 tackles, carted the ball forward for 165 metres and recorded a try assist.
