The penultimate week of Super 8s action saw some fresh faces spring into action!
They certainly made their mark in the race towards Old Trafford but don’t neglect the veterans, they had a key involvement, worthy of recognition in this week’s edition of Team of the Week; find out below who made the cut!
Fullback – Ben Barba
Perhaps the start of something special from Ben Barba as the X-Factor found his form and helped Saints to an emphatic win over Huddersfield to keep their top four hopes alive.
The 28-year-old helped boss the game; scoring a try as well as providing an assist being his key areas.
However, it wasn’t just that, he remained heavily involved throughout, managing five tackle busts, three clean breaks and even tallying 160 metres from 15 carries.
Quite the turn around after facing criticism during his slow start but it was expected from the world class figure; his suspension being enough to disrupt anyone.
Now such a win and excellent performance should boost his confidence to kick-start his return to greatness!
