Another week, another round of Super League, but just who deserves a place in round ten’s Team of the Week?
1. Stefan Ratchford – Warrington Wolves
Stefan Ratchford was injured for about 60 minutes of Warrington’s fixture against St Helens, but that didn’t matter as the fullback had one of his best performances in a Wolves shirt.
2. Ben Crooks – Hull KR
Hull KR’s shock victory over Wigan was partly inspired by Ben Crooks’ try and three conversions as he notched up ten of KR’s 18 points overall.
3. Peter Mata’utia – Castleford Tigers
Peter Mata’utia was unstoppable on Wednesday night against Wakefield, causing Trinity problems all night down their left-edge defence. The centre scored once and was the catalyst for two more as Castleford just about scraped past their big-city rivals.
4. Jack Welsby – St Helens
Jack Welsby is getting better with every passing game and he demonstrated just why Saints boss Kristian Woolf cannot keep him out of the side with yet another superb performance against Warrington.
5. Jordan Turner – Castleford Tigers
He started on the wing for the Tigers, scoring one superb try before an injury to Gareth O’Brien saw Jordan Turner move into the halves and he didn’t look any more out of place.
6. Josh Reynolds – Hull FC
The halfback tore Leigh to shreds all afternoon, having a hand in everything that Hull did well.
7. Gareth Widdop – Warrington Wolves
Widdop has been in sensational form in 2021 and the halfback stamped his authority all over Warrington’s game against St Helens.
8. Chris Satae – Hull FC
He’s been incredible all year and Chris Satae was his ever-impressive best on Saturday afternoon as Hull thrashed Leigh. With some barnstorming runs and hard-hitting defence, the prop forward destroyed the Centurions down the midde.
9. Daryl Clark – Warrington Wolves
It wasn’t the right time for him to carve St Helens up down the middle, but Daryl Clark still enjoyed a tremendous game.
10. Suaia Matagi – Castleford Tigers
After moving to Castleford on a one-year loan deal from Huddersfield, Suaia Matagi has taken to the Tigers like a duck to water and his performance was inspiring to say the least against Wakefield on Thursday night.
11. Ben Currie – Warrington Wolves
The second-rower was in tremendous form down the left-edge and was a deserved try-scorer in Warrington’s narrow win over St Helens. Currie is getting better with every game and is certainly one of the Wolves’ best performers in 2021.
12. Andre Savelio – Hull FC
Andre Savelio registered a hat-trick in Hull’s destruction of Leigh.
13. Joe Westerman – Wakefield Trinity
Despite Wakefield’s loss to Castleford, Joe Westerman still showed what he can do, justifying his England selection with some superb touches.
14. Liam Watts – Castleford Tigers
He started on the bench for Castleford and boy did Liam Watts make an impact. His offload game killed Wakefield on Thursday night.
15. Jack Brown – Hull FC
He came off the bench to do damage to Leigh, crossing the whitewash once.
16. Nathaniel Peteru – Leigh Centurions
To be fair to Leigh, it wasn’t all bad with Nathaniel Peteru being a shining light off the substitutes’ bench.
17. Jez Litten – Hull KR
Jez Litten again came off the bench to great effect for Hull KR in their surprise victory over Wigan.
