Team of the Week: One of Super League’s best stands out in great win

With games between Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves, Wigan Warriors and Hull FC, a relegation scrap between Wakefield Trinity and Castleford Tigers as well as a top of the table clash between Leigh Leopards and Catalans Dragons.

It was another vitally important in the Betfred Super League as we start to get a grip of what the final Super League table could look like.

The League Leaders’ Shield race is becoming clearer, one side secured their spot in the play-offs, the play-off battle is heating up whilst Castleford took a massive step to survival with a 28-12 win over Wakefield.

Elsewhere on Friday night we saw a booming Harry Smith drop goal break Hull FC hearts as he made amends for three misses with the boot which would have won the game in normal time.

Salford Red Devils took a vital step towards the play-offs by defeating Huddersfield Giants which was made more important by the defeat for Hull KR at St Helens.

Then on Saturday, we saw Leigh Leopards unable to match French side Catalans Dragons. The Dragons took a four point lead at the top of the league with the win and officially secured their play-off spot.

Meanwhile Sunday saw Leeds Rhinos defeat Warrington Wolves to really heat up the play-off race.

But who makes our team of the week?

Fullback: Ryan Brierley
In a return to form for Salford, it is unsurprising to see a key man like Ryan Brierley step up again and put his stamp on the game. He was an excellent attacking threat.

Wingers: Greg Eden & Tom Davies
A hat trick of tries in a must win game showed why Greg Eden is one of the best wingers in the game. Another top winger grabbed a try and was all round brilliant against Leigh.

Centres: Toby King and Jake Wardle
Wigan’s two centres were the difference makers on Friday night as their tries allowed the Warriors to battle back against Hull FC.

Halfbacks: Aidan Sezer and Tyrone May
Aidan Sezer was back to his best at Headingley on Sunday. He made a crucial break for the try that gave Leeds the lead they would never relinquish and was top notch throughout as was Tyrone May as he proved the game breaker against Leigh.

Props: Sam Walters and Tom Amone
Great versatility from Sam Walters this week. He played prop, second-row and 13 and was a stand out across the field and notched a try and was involved in others. Meanwhile, Tom Amone showed why he is currently the league’s best prop despite defeat against Catalans.

Hooker: Liam Horne 
Like many at Cas, Liam Horne has been thrown in at the deep end but he stood up on Friday with an accomplished display at nine.

Second-Row: Paul Segier and Charbel Tasipale
Another of Cas’ new faces stood out on Sunday as Tasipale crossed for the opener and was solid throughout. Paul Segier was the Man of the Match for Catalans and scored a vital try.

Loose-Forward: Cameron Smith
One of the league’s best loose-forwards, Smith was in many ways the game breaker for Leeds. He tore Warrington apart frequently down the middle.
