McCrone's become the main man at the Raiders once again with Terry Campese ruled out for the season, but can he and new halves partner Sam Williams match it with the frontrunner for NSW five-eighth job?

No tatts jokes this week for Toddy, just admiration for his top notch start to the season... clap, clap! Is Todd the chosen one to guide the Blues back from the brink of permanent Maroons dominance?

Adam Reynolds
vs

This rookie sensation has shown that age is no barrier in the NRL, scoring a feast of tries in his first season with the Bunnies. Has Everingham done enough to get himself on the Hollywood walk of fame or does Rusty want to see more box office blockbusters?

With Reynolds steering the red and green ship like a veteran master and commander, the Rabbitohs have no need to dwell on losing Sandow. Has this 21 year old dug himself a home burrow at the Bunnies?

Colin Best
vs

He left the Sharks in search of bigger and better things but has landed with a team that is starting to turn green. Can Ferguson show his old team that he can swim on his own or will he be turned into Shark bait?

Best is one of the few Cronulla players who was actually alive when the Sharks used to be a decent team. Can Colin help his team bring out their best against the Raiders and make it six wins in a row for the Shire boys?

Shaun Johnson
vs

Cronk and the Kangaroos sunk the Kiwis last Friday, but now the Cooper is back with his Storm teammates can he do the same to the Warriors? Wait a minute... his Storm teammates are his Kangaroos teammates... good luck Shaun!

This Kiwi playmaker with the indestructible shoulder showed the Kangaroos that he was worthy of Test selection. Will Johnson and his jet-propelled shoes be able to outrun the thunderstorm that is forecast for Melbourne?

The Red V might not be the most exciting team to watch but they have beaten Wayne Bennett twice this season. Does that make them twice as good or twice as unlikely to win the entertainers award?

It is an away game at home for the Bondi boys so hopefully they will have a few fans turn up in support. Can the chooks use the ANZAC spirit to lift them to victory or will it be a case of black hawk down?

While it appears Peter Wallace will miss out on NSW selection, his return to the Broncos team will no doubt spark up this local derby. Will the baby Broncos continue to roll through the NRL and keep the Titans fighting for survival?

The Titans bounced back to form against the premiers in Round 7 and stepped away from the bottom of the ladder. Can Coach Cartwright keep building the victories or will he need to go back to the drawing board against the Broncos?

While Trent and Des have already jumped ship to the Bulldogs, they are now waiting for the final piece to fall and bring Foran across to Belmore. Will Foran and Hodkinson dominate the next decade at the Dogs?

They teamed up and delivered a premiership to the Northern Beaches, but will 2012 be their last season together in Sea Eagles colours or will this halves combination form a dynasty that will dominate for years to come?

Out of Shape Eel?

Sandow avoided a short stint in the NSW Cup but the spotlight will be back on him and his belly when the Eels face the Wests Tigers on Sunday. Can Chris suck it in and show he belongs on the footy field and not the Biggest Loser?

Remember this little pocket rocket who set the NRL alight with his speed, skill and slender build? Was Sandow at his best when he was a bunny or will the blue and gold army be able to bring him back to life?

Hero of the Hunter

First there was Bennet and then Buderus... now Tinky has brought Big Willie back to the Hunter where it all began. Will this mining magnate be able to make Mason into the feared enforcer that his one was or will Willie end up wonky?

Western Sydney Warrior

Gus has tasted success at many levels of the game but is now facing one of the biggest challenges of his career... waking the sleeping pussy cats and turning them into purring Panthers. Will Gus become the Prince of Penrith?
