Super League Team of the Week

Another week, another round of Super League later, but who made the Team of the Week for round nine?

1. Jake Connor – Hull FC

There couldn’t really be anyone else to take this accolade after a superb performance against Castleford. The fullback taunted the Tigers all night with some brilliant touches – including a pinpoint 40/20 – as well as a well-deserved try at the end.

2. Ryan Hall – Hull KR

Ryan Hall showed his class yet again with an accomplished display out wide. He crossed once more to establish his dominance at the top of the Super League try-scoring charts.

3. Brad Takairangi – Hull KR

The Hull KR centre scored his first try for the Robins on Friday night, with a masterful kick and chase for himself. But, it was Brad Takairangi’s overall play that impressed the most – he looks to be settling in really well in Hull.

4. Mahe Fonua – Hull FC

He played in the centres and boy did it pay off for Mahe Fonua ad Hull FC. The human wrecking-ball totally destroyed the Castleford defence out wide, crossing for two tries as he looked back to his best.

5. Josh Charnley – Warrington Wolves

The winger found the line three times in Warrington’s win against Wakefield on Friday night, but also helped his side considerably when coming out defence.

6. Gareth Widdop – Warrington Wolves

The halfback was tremendous once again for Warrington in their demolition of Wakefield. He kicked all six conversions and one penalty and even dotted down himself as Widdop continues to make his case for England selection.

7. Marc Sneyd – Hull FC

If Jake Connor was so brilliant then Marc Sneyd had a great part to play in opening the doors for the number one. The halfback’s kicking game proved too hot to handle for the Tigers, though he perhaps should have been sinbinned for an illegal tackle on Alex Foster.

8. Julian Bousquet – Catalans Dragons

Proved himself a big thorn in the Leigh side in Catalans’ narrow victory on Saturday afternoon.

9. Matt Parcell – Hull KR

Matt Parcell tortured Salford all night through the middle and his try in the 66th minute was just rewards for an enthusiastic and determined display.

10. Chris Satae – Hull FC

Chris Satae has been in inspired form all year for the black-and-whites and he demonstrated his credentials to an even greater extent on Thursday night, sending most of the Castleford defence back-peddling for the majority of the evening.

11. Oliver Holmes – Castleford Tigers

He ran his blood to water for the Tigers in what was a disappointing night, backing up extremely well from an energy-sapping Challenge Cup semi-final.

12. Kane Linnett – Hull KR

The second-rower appears to have gone up another level in 2021 with yet another determined performance against Salford on Friday night.

13. Joe Westerman – Wakefield Trinity

Again, Joe Westerman was valiant in defeat as he justified his England inclusion with another strong display in a bitterly disappointing night for Trinity against Warrington.

Substitutes

14. Jez Litten – Hull KR

Yet again, Jez Litten had a fantastic game off the substitutes’ bench, causing havoc down the middle for Salford.

15. Brad Fash – Hull FC

The forward had a great game off the bench, more than punching above his weight in the forward pack.

16. Nathan Mason – Leigh Centurions

Brought some much-needed firepower off the bench for Leigh.

17. Arthur Mourgue – Catalans Dragons

Once more underlined his credentials with some brilliant touches off the bench for the Dragons.
