Second-row – Dale Ferguson & Sika Manu
The back row and another bizarre selection some might say as Huddersfield’s Dale Ferguson and Hull’s Sika Manu are selected.
Ferguson enjoyed a very good game in Huddersfield’s win over Warrington.
Having scored a try as well as manage five tackle busts and 113 metres from 14 carries saw him prove a good asset in attack.
He wasn’t even afraid to shy away from defensive work with his 27 tackles that helped restrict the visitors to just six points scored.
As for Manu, though he ended up on the losing side, he and Hull endured a very testing game down in Australia and did well considering the circumstances.
His team mates were dropping left, right and centre but he stuck to his guns and helped give Wigan a very tough game.
A personal contribution of 27 tackles and 150 metres with ball in hand is yet another demonstration of how important he is to Hull and how worthy he is of his 2017 club Player of the Year award.
Loose-forward – Hep Cahill
Finally, another infamous choice maybe as Widnes’ Hep Cahill completes this week’s team.
Cahill put in another tough effort against last season’s league leaders as he and Widnes narrowly went down at the Mend-a-Hose Jungle.
Having completed 40 tackles as well as amass 126 metres from 17 carries, Cahill helped keep the Vikings competitive throughout as they came close to surprising the Tigers.
So, that’s this week’s edition, others could have been selected, but these ultimately stood out and should have more to offer once Super League return’s properly as next week sees the league contest the honour of the world’s best with the NRL, make sure you tune in!
