  1. Josh Morris (Cronulla Sharks)

Bagged a double as the Sharks won their first back to back game since Round three this season.

  1. Curtis Scott (Melbourne Storm)

Continues an impressive streak of football since the team came under scrutiny several weeks ago. Scored a try, took the line on and had the ball on a string with an equally impressive kicking game.

  1. Payne Haas (Brisbane Broncos)

This 20-year-old must really find first grade easy. In just his eight first grade appearance, the hulking prop ran for 202 running metres, completed 32 tackles and broke nine of the oppositions attempts of tackle.

  1. Ha ha Donkeys beat a half strength Manly and they get all these players in the team of the round as though they were great. They were still rubbish just not as bad in the second half.
