Super League Team of the Week: Round 19

SL team of the week

Full-back – Zak Hardaker (Castleford Tigers)

Hardaker had a point to prove against the Rhinos and he certainly delivered. He scored a stunning solo try to help the Tigers defeat his parent club.

Wing – Corey Thompson (Widnes Vikings)

Another impressive display, showing great imagination and determination to score two tries. He was a constant threat for Widnes, with 225 meters completed.

Centre – Greg Minikin (Castleford Tigers)

Played his part in a very strong team performance as the Tigers made it seven wins in a row against the Rhinos. Completed 146 meters and was as consistent as ever.

Centre – Ryan Atkins (Warrington Wolves)

Played a key role for the Wolves in an important win over the Catalans Dragons. He scored two tries and created another for Benjamin Jullien.

Wing – Liam Marshall (Wigan Warriors)

In a difficult year so far for the Warriors, Marshall has been one of the major positives. The winger helped himself to a brace of tries in an entertaining draw and now has 20 tries in 2017.

Stand-off – George Williams (Wigan Warriors)

A solid outing, scoring three goals and his drop goal near the end helped the Warriors pick up a share of the points at Huddersfield.

Scrum-half – Marc Sneyd (Hull FC)

An impressive display on his return as he helped Hull FC make it four wins on the trot. He contributed massively in the win over Wakefield with a try, an assist and six conversions.

Prop – Alex Walmsley (St Helens)

A strong performance from the 27-year-old as the Saints pulled off a stunning comeback to beat the Salford Red Devils. Walmsley completed 33 tackles and 172 meters as St Helens clawed their way back in the final stages of the game.

Hooker – James Roby (St Helens)

His try, the 100th of his career, helped spark the Saints comeback against the Red Devils. Roby put in a strong all-round display with 53 tackles completed.

Prop – Liam Watts (Hull FC) 

Another solid performance from Watts as he helped Hull consolidate their Super League top-four credentials with a win over Wakefield. The 26-year-old was a driving force, completing 148 meters.

Second-row – Chris Houston (Widnes Vikings)

The evergreen forward put in a great shift, scoring two tries to help his side continue their midsummer renaissance. His defensive qualities were also on show with 32 tackles completed.

Second-row – John Bateman (Wigan Warriors)

Bateman is starting to return to form after his injury layoff. He made it two tries in two games after scoring in the draw at Huddersfield and completed 31 tackles in the game.

Loose-forward – Hep Cahill (Widnes Vikings)

The 30-year-old put in an assured display as the Vikings beat Leigh in a bottom-of-the-table Super League clash. Cahill showed plenty of energy, completing an impressive 34 tackles as Widnes took control of the game.
