Willie Mason

He bumped his head and then got bumped out of Origin, but instead of disappearing into the wilderness with a bandaged head this Bunny bumped his way back into the headlines with a barnstorming performance against the Panthers.

Big Willie helped the Knights win back-to-back matches for the first time this season but the coal city kids are still far from full power. Can Mason muscle up to the human coal train and stop him from driving the two competition points out of town?

Shaun Johnson
vs

After losing five in a row early in the season the Prince of Robina has rallied his royal troops and marched them to the brink of the top eight. The problem now is getting past the mean-looking Warriors who stand at the gate.

After a grand final appearance in 2011 everyone thought Shaun had stepped out of the shadows of being tagged as the 'next Benji' and carved out his own career, but the cross-Tasman speedster and his Kiwi friends need to spring back to life to land back in the finals.

Aaron Woods
vs

With the departure of Bryce Gibbs, Big Keith was looking forward to a season as the dominant forward in the Tigers pack but after a stellar start to the season he now has to share it with this young cub. Is Keithy the king of the Tigers clan?

A beard and a baby face are a tough combination to pull off on a rugby league field but this Tigers prop has managed to make it work. He even propelled himself into discussions for Origin selection. Are there bigger days ahead for this bearded Tiger?

Ex-coach Dessie spent years trying to get the Sea Eagles to fly under the radar of premiership favouritism with little success. Now that he has moved on it seems the Sea Eagles are finally flapping mid-pack without the added pressure being the team to beat... is it just smoke and mirrors?

They now have more coaches than the Australian Olympic team heading to London, but will it help the blue and gold army return to their glory days and serve up Brookvale boilover for the Sea Eagles? Go for gold Eels!

Tri-colour Carney

Tuesday 3rd July

Hot Toddy seems to have settled in nicely in the Shire and is helping to steer the Sharkies towards September footy. Can Carney deliver some silverware to the Shire or will 2010 be his only taste of grand final atmosphere?

Scoring a Dally M medal and a grand final appearance in the one season is not a bad effort... not bad at all. Was it Todd’s individual brilliance that served up a shot at glory for the Bondi boy or did his support team deserve more of the applause?

Driven by Origin omission?

Boosted by Origin appearance?

vs
Tuesday 3rd July
Tuesday 3rd July

With his hip back into place Chris was on the hunt for a Blues jersey this season but it didn’t eventuate. Will Lawrence be looking to take out his frustration on the Bulldog who took his Blues jersey?

It is a rare occasion to have two brothers playing State of Origin together. Will playing on the big stage with his bro help lift J-Moz to another level and land a knockout blow on Lawrence and the Tigers?
