Midway through March and life in Super League for some really did rear its ugly head.
Some clubs starting to find some form, others re-discovering their old routes but room remained for clubs to sink to a whole new level of mediocrity.
Others taking advantage of such situations and below are the 13 players who stood out from the pack and are currently helping their teams a step further towards silverware.
Fullback – Morgan Escare
A change of fullback this time around as exiled player Morgan Escare of the World Champions is included.
Edging out other such as Gareth O’Brien, Escare found his top form that has deserted him in recent seasons as he helped Wigan to an emphatic win over rival club Warrington.
The 25-year-old linked up well with George Williams and Thomas Leuluai from the word go and never gave the Wolves a sniff.
Personally, his go forward was something to be reckoned with, having nearly averaged a total of ten metres gained with ball in hand.
Yes, Escare may be returning to his best but only time will tell as he and Wigan are on the right track towards retaining their world crown.
