Super League Team of the Week

Round 11 has been and gone, but just who deserves a place in the Team of the Week?

1. Richie Myler – Leeds Rhinos

Richie Myler once more demonstrated just how important he is to this Leeds side with yet another accomplished display at the back. The livewire playmaker scored twice and had a hand in others as the Red Devils just couldn’t handle his trickery.

2. Mitieli Vulikijapani – Hull FC

The Fijian winger looks to be taking his chance at Hull with both hands. After waiting patiently in the wings for his chance, injuries have allowed Vulikijapani to take a wing spot and he has impressed thoroughly, winning the man-of-the-match for his display against Huddersfield on Friday night.

3. Samisoni Langi – Catalans Dragons

He played most of the game in the halves following Alrix Da Costa’s injury, but Samisoni Langi started at centre and caused the Castleford defence a lot of problems in the early exchanges, scoring once – albeit in controversial fashion.

4. Jake Mamo – Warrington Wolves

Jake Mamo once more stood tall amongst the Warrington players as he helped the Wolves to a thrashing of Leigh.

5.  Jack Broadbent – Leeds Rhinos

The makeshift winger scored twice and had an overall impressive game as Leeds put Salford to the sword on Sunday afternoon.

6. Liam Watts – Castleford Tigers

When Castleford needed their men to stand up and be counted, Liam Watts was more than ready. Named at halfback – which is why he takes the number six spot here – the makeshift playmaker shrugged off a nasty-looking first-half injury to lead both the forwards and halves around the field.

7. Gareth Widdop – Warrington Wolves

Once more controlled proceedings with some excellent touches against a tired Leigh side. Widdop is really starting to come into his own in 2021 and looks more like the player that Warrington bought, crossing the line once and converting eight from eight.

8. Ligi Sao – Hull FC

Another powerhouse performance from the Hull forward, Ligi Sao tore Huddersfield to shreds with some massive carries, helping his side get on the front foot after a less-than-impressive first-half.

9. Danny Walker – Warrington Wolves

Had a standout game at hooker in the absence of Daryl Clark, destroying Leigh around the ruck area and firmly putting his name forward for more minutes.

10. Brad Fash – Hull FC

He was drafted in to start at prop following Chris Satae’s inclusion in the All Stars and boy did Brad Fash warrant that starting berth. Fash may not be the biggest, but he certainly has the biggest heart and he performed admirably against Huddersfield.

11. Matty Ashurst – Wakefield Trinity

Matty Ashurst celebrated his new deal with a try and an excellent game as Wakefield surprised Wigan on Friday night.

12. Alex Mellor – Leeds Rhinos

The second-rower was at his domineering best in the pack as Leeds steamrolled over Salford with Alex Mellor playing a huge role in the process.

13. Matt Davis – Warrington Wolves

The loose-forward tends to go under the radar for Warrington, but he put in another excellent shift in the Wolves’ demolition of Leigh on Thursday night.

Substitutes

14. Brad Dwyer – Leeds Rhinos

Brad Dwyer once more showed his worth for the Rhinos, carving Salford up the middle in a devastating performance.

15. Jacques O’Neill – Castleford Tigers

The little Tiger raised his stock with a superb game off the bench, only to fall foul of a pulled hamstring late on.

16. Eribe Doro – Warrington Wolves

Eribe Doro certainly took his chance well after being on the fringes of the first-team in 2021, scoring once and showing up extremely well.

17. Yusuf Aydin – Wakefield Trinity

The forward looks to have a big future ahead of him after more than mixing it with the big boys at Wigan.
