Ben Creagh

The big choc missed his shot at Origin I and is now out to show the NSW selectors that he deserves a Blues jersey. With his recent standout performances he should be a certain starter, only question is who gets put on the chopping block...Creagh?

When talking about variation, this Dragon struggles to meet the definition. Same lines, same runs, same results. Well, if the mighty Red V want to return from Brookie with a win they will need to make sure they study the dictionary and learn some variation.

James Segeyaro

This Titan has to wear headgear because he is only three feet tall. Despite his size, Srama’s quick little legs help him duck and weave through the opposition defence with ease... it looks a bit like a game of watch-a-mole with his head popping up here, there and everywhere.

With hair like that why cover it with headgear? This pocket rocket from up north has no issue flying head first at his bigger opponents. Call him crazy but his don't say he is not using his head.

Greg Inglis
vs

He came face to face with GI in Origin I and handled himself very well, but on a points decision the victory had to go to Inglis. So, now we come to the re-match before the Origin re-match... can J-Moz even the scores?

This big Rabbit no longer looks like he swallowed a sheep and he definitely is not soft and cuddly to tackle, so when it comes to stepping in front of Inglis on the footy field you need to be ready to stand your ground... any takers?

They looked to find their spark against the Tigers only to be pipped at the post. Can Hurrell the Hulk hunt down a few more four-pointers or will the Storm streak the cross-Tasman team with another slick performance?

The second-placed Broncos couldn't keep pace last weekend against these Victorians, but the Warriors have some real speedsters at their disposal and might stand a chance. Are Bellamy's boys in a league of their own this season?

Gladiator Gallen

He could tackle everyone in the crowd at Parramatta Stadium and still not get puffed, but this ageing workhorse is on his last legs and riding towards a possible wooden spoon. Can he lift for this battle against the new NRL power forward?

As Gallen keeps performing above and beyond human abilities the expectations on him to keep the Sharks swimming in the top eight continues to mount. Are Big Gal's massive shoulders wide enough to hold up the hopes of the Shire?

Fast Benji?

Slow Benji?

Watching this Kiwi superstar streak through an opposing team for a long distance try is one of the best sights in rugby league. It is like a childhood memory of watching Speedy Gonzales disappear in a puff of smoke... where did he go?

Some usual Benji brilliance found some open space against the Cowboys but a masterstroke by coach Neil Henry to put the big friendly giant James Tamou at fullback was enough to stop Marshall in his tracks. Has old age started to stall Benji’s speedy feet?

Anthony Griffin

The Origin brick wall has once again stopped the Baby Broncos in their tracks and coach Griffin needs to find an answer if he was to come out the other end still in the top eight. Is resting the big guns the best way to win a premiership?

Wayne Bennett

With the Willie Mason experiment is yet to pay dividends on the points table will Wayne look to move Darius into the halves? The master has named him at fullback but it wouldn't be the first time a coach has pulled a sneaky.
