Super League Team of the Week: Four players included after defeat as seven teams represented

Round 13 of the Betfred Super League in 2023 will go down as one of the best of the season.

It all started at Craven Park as Hull KR battled hard despite their number of injuries against Wigan Warriors and even led 22-14 late in the game despite having Ryan Hall sin binned.

Wigan forced the game to golden point however where a Bevan French break and a Liam Farrell try broke Hull KR hearts.

On Friday, Catalans Dragons leapfrogged Hull KR into third as they beat Wakefield Trinity comfortably. Wakefield are still without new signing Luke Gale.

Elsewhere, Leigh Leopards stunned league leaders Warrington Wolves whilst Huddersfield Giants got back to winning ways against Castleford Tigers.

Meanwhile, another game went to golden point at Headingley as St Helens battled back from 12-4 down against an injury ravaged Leeds side before a Lewis Dodd drop goal settled matters.

On Sunday, Salford Red Devils ended Hull FC’s winning run in a great game.

But who makes our team of the week?

Fullback: Bevan French (Wigan Warriors)
Hull KR tried their best to keep him quiet but his ability as a ball player on Thursday shone through for Liam Farrell’s first two tries before he came up with the game winning play.

Wingers: Liam Marshall (Wigan Warriors) & Tom Johnstone (Catalans Dragons)
Two tries, two assists and nearly 300 metres run, Liam Marshall was outstanding as the Warriors defeated Hull KR. He is joined by Tom Johnstone who continues to torment his former club after scoring a hat-trick against them earlier this year he crossed twice again.

Centres: Arthur Romano (Catalans Dragons) & Rhyse Martin (Leeds Rhinos)
Arthur Romano may not have scored but he had two assists as he proved the chief tormentor of Wakefield early in the game. He is joined by Rhyse Martin who started at second-row but played centre for 75 minutes and his running game was brilliant especially when he created the opening try for Ash Handley.

Halfbacks: Marc Sneyd (Salford Red Devils) & Jake Clifford (Hull FC)
Two players who went up against each other and both stood up and Clifford was unlucky to be on the losing side. Sneyd had the better of it bossing things but both men deserved their tries.

Props: Alex Walmsley (St Helens) & Tom Holroyd (Leeds Rhinos)
Alex Walmsley made well over 200 metres against Leeds on Friday night and it was his drive forward at the death that provided St Helens with the position they needed to nail the winning drop goal. As for Holroyd, he was also brilliant in the same game. He made some great busts and half breaks and rose to the challenge of the Saints back.

Hooker: Matt Parcell (Hull KR)
He may have lost but Matt Parcell was sensational at number nine for Hull KR with a try and an assist.

Second-Rowers: Liam Farrell (Wigan Warriors) & Curtis Sironen (St Helens)
It was inevitable that Liam Farrell would find himself in this team with a hat-trick of tries including the winner as well as working hard. Meanwhile, Curtis Sironen was Man of the Match against St Helens scoring a vital try.

Loose-Forward: James Bell (St Helens)
Another player whose run at the death was vital to St Helens’ triumph. Stepping in again for Morgan Knowles, he did a terrific job as always.
