Round 3 proved to have as many twists and turns as the previous two rounds, but who contributed enough to their teams to earn a place in the Team of the Week?
Full-back – Jamie Shaul (Hull FC)
Despite being on the losing side, Shaul scored twice and looked very threatening with ball-in-hand. If his form continues, he could potentially be looking at a stint in the England team.
Winger – Tommy Makinson (St Helens)
With Makinson on the wing, Saints look a lot more deadly in attack. His aerial presence is insane and this was emphasised as he outjumped Ryan Shaw twice to score one and assist another.
Centre – Kallum Watkins (Leeds Rhinos)
Watkins scored arguably the try of the round as he raced 80 metres to score the final try against Catalans and secure a grandstand finish. Despite Leeds lack of form, the England international continues to perform to the best of his ability.
Centre – Charly Runciman (Widnes Vikings)
Runciman was one of many Widnes players who stood out in a win at Huddersfield. He produced a solid defensive display whist scoring at the other end for Widnes’ third try of the day.
Winger – Denny Solomona (Castleford Tigers)
Denny Solomona is the only player who has made it into the Team of the Week every week so far, and it’s clear to see why. The fantastic Winger bagged a hat-trick of tries, including an interception right on the hooter.
Stand-off – Kevin Brown (Widnes Vikings)
Kevin Brown was pivotal for Widnes as he ran rings round his former team at the John Smiths Stadium, assisting one try and having a major impact in many others.
Scrum-half – Luke Gale (Castleford Tigers)
Gale was the difference between the two sides at the KC Stadium. He was involved in most of the Castleford tries and also slotted over an incredible drop-goal late on to put his team in front. Gale was not only incredible in attack, but also in defence. The Scrum-half produced a fine defensive display including a tackle on Minichello when he looked likely to score.
Prop – Dave Taylor (Catalans Dragons)
Taylor is proving to be Catalan’s best signing so far, with two tries and lots of tackles. He also made several great runs setting up great field positions, for the backs to work their magic as the Dragons saw off the champions at Stade Gilbert Brutus.
Hooker – Lloyd White (Widnes Vikings)
Nobody was expecting Lloyd White to be one of the Super League’s best Hookers at the start of 2016, but he has proved them wrong. His influence for Widnes is unreal and he has been key for many of Widnes’ tries.
Prop-forward – Dane Tilse (Hull KR)
Despite a rocky start for Hull KR, Dane Tilse has massively improved on his disappointing 2015 season. He made many solid runs and produced a superb offload which resulted in Maurice Blair crashing over to score in the corner.
Second-row – Glenn Stewart (Catalans Dragons)
Glenn Stewart was described as a huge signing for Catalan, and he proved just why with a fantastic performance which included a staggering 56 tackles along with a try assist as the Dragons beat Leeds.
Second-row – Ben Currie (Warrington Wolves)
Ben Currie has been Mr. Consistent in 2016. His incredible work rate cannot be argued with and he was rewarded for his hard work with two tries against Wakefield. If he continues to improve, Currie will surely be giving Wayne Bennett something to think about when selecting his England team come the end of the season.
Loose-forward – Joe Westerman (Warrington Wolves)
Joe Westerman was impressive for Warrington. The Loose-forward made 108 metres and 32 tackles to help Warrington ease past Wakefield in a dominant performance.
