April finally finishes, as does the mid-way point of the 2017 campaign as the scramble for the Super 8s took an interesting turn.
The final week this month once more had plenty more stars on show in some surprising results, not many, if any at all, would have predicted from the off but below are the 13 who had the advantage over their rivals and just made the cut.
Any players from your team in? And if so, who?!
Fullback – Zak Hardaker
Attaining the full-back position for the fourth time this season is Castleford loanee Zak Hardaker.
Returning to the position wasn’t too difficult for the International, shrugging off the likes of Jamie Shaul.
The 25-year-old though enjoyed such a spectacular match on Saturday, helping the ‘Classy Cas’ to a famous 50 point mauling over World Champions Wigan Warriors.
Hardaker not only assisted in one of his side’s nine tries but also carted up nearly 150 metres from just 11 carries, clearly displaying his worth as a drafted in loanee.
Quite a recovery from losing to 12 men last week, Hardaker and Castleford are back on course to challenge for silverware, with the former maybe in the frame for a second Man of Steel award, the fourth player to be successful of it occurs.
