SL Team of the Week: Round 20

Fullback – Adam Quinlan (Hull KR)

Was simply sensational against Salford on Sunday. Made 141 metres and showed superb speed and awareness for his two tries.

Wing – Adam Swift (St Helens)

His hattrick sums up his whole performance. Constantly got involved and showed his desire to be a regular starter once again, making 173 metres and four clean breaks.

Centre – John Bateman (Wigan Warriors)

A thorn in Warrington’s side all game on Friday. Topped the stats charts in metres made, offloads and carries and delivered another workman-like performance.

Centre – Brayden Wiliame (Catalan Dragons)

Showed pace and power out wide and scored two quality tries in the process. Combined well with Kenny Edwards and Fouad Yaha to make the Dragons’ left side a constant threat.

Wing – Darnell McIntosh (Huddersfield Giants)

Made the second most metres in the game with 145. Is proving to be a real threat down the left and scored two more well-finished tries to take his season tally to eight.

Stand-off – Danny McGuire (Hull KR)

Led from the front in a dominant Rovers performance. Scored an entertaining hattrick, rolling back the years with his footwork and trickery, and orchestrated Rovers’ attack all afternoon.

Scrum-half – Jake Trueman (Castleford Tigers)

Continues to impress as one of Super League’s best young halves. Constantly troubled the Rhinos line, scoring a clever brace, and responded well after a disappointing showing against Catalans last week.

Prop – Julian Bousquet (Catalan Dragons)

Helped the Dragons win the battle in the middle and created a great platform for Drinkwater and Langi to play off. Made 135 metres and had a solid average gain of 9.00.

Hooker – Daryl Clark (Warrington Wolves)

Was relentless in trying to break down Wigan’s defence from dummy half. Also made the third most tackles in the game with 35.

Prop – Nathan Massey (Castleford Tigers)

Made the most metres against Leeds on Sunday with 172 from 20 carries and stood up well in defence. Rookie teammate Mitch Clark also deserves an honourable mention, after putting in a confident performance of his own.

Second Row – Aaron Murphy (Huddersfield Giants)

Another solid performance as Murphy continues to grow as a back rower. Stood up in defence, making the second most tackles in his side (34), and put himself in good positions which earned him a try.

Second Row – Liam Paisley (Wigan Warriors)

A youngster showing plenty of promise. Performed above his years, running and tackling hard, and managed to get over for his first senior try in just his second game for the club.

Loose Forward – Ben Westwood (Warrington Wolves)

Marked his 500th career appearance with a man-of-the-match performance. Made the game’s most tackles with 38 and didn’t deserve to be on the losing side.
