SL Team of the Week: Round 19

Fullback – Mitch Brown (Warrington Wolves)

Covered well for Stefan Ratchford in a position he is less familiar in. Grabbed an assist and covered the most ground of any player all afternoon, making 186 metres.

Wing – Regan Grace (St Helens)

Put in one of his best performances of the season against Wakefield, racking up some ridiculous stats. Made the most metres (205m) and had the highest average gain (14.64m) of any player in Super League all weekend, as well as his two superb tries.

Centre – Carlos Tuimavave (Hull FC)

Stood out in Hull’s win over Widnes, scoring an impressive long-range try and grabbing an assist. Also made the second-most metres and had the second-best average gain in the game.

Centre – Junior Vaivai (Hull KR)

Without doubt one of the signings of the season. Got a try and an assist in Rovers’ win over Huddersfield on Friday and also made the most tackle busts of any Super League player all weekend with 10. A real thorn in the Giants’ side all night.

Wing – Hakim Miloudi (Hull FC)

Continues to be a dark horse out on the Black and Whites’ left wing. Scored a try and also made the most carries and tackle busts of anyone in his team. Bureta Faraimo and Liam Marshall also deserve honourable mentions after impressive performances.

Stand-off – Josh Woods (Wigan Warriors)

Dictated play in the first half. His kicking game and organisation were superb, while he has the confidence to take risks in attack now and then, which is the sign of a great halfback.

Scrum-half – Josh Drinkwater (Catalan Dragons)

Lead from the front in his side’s win over Castleford and scored 24 of his side’s 44 points, including a hattrick. Proving to be a very handy pickup for the Dragons.

Prop – David Fifita (Wakefield Trinity)

Another workhorse-like performance from the Australian forward. Made the joint most carries of any Super League player all weekend with 22 and constantly tried to inspire his side’s attack with five offloads.

Hooker – James Roby (St Helens)

Another solid James Roby performance. Lead from the front, making the game’s most tackles with 44 and most dummy runs with five.

Prop – Mose Masoe (Hull KR)

Rovers won the forwards battle on Friday and Masoe was a huge part of that. The towering prop made the most metres in the game and also had one of the highest average gains.

Second Row – John Bateman (Wigan Warriors)

Had a solid all-round game on Thursday with a man-of-the-match performance. Also made the most carries all game with 20.

Second Row – Louis Anderson (Catalan Dragons)

Solid outing from a player who generally goes unnoticed in Super League. Injected himself well into the game off the bench and

Loose Forward – Greg Bird (Catalan Dragons)

Scored a try and made the most metres on Saturday with 154. Put in a great shift in defence as well, with his huge hit on Oliver Holmes in the 56th minute being a stand-out moment.
