2. Glen Fisiiahi (Warriors): Had an absolute field day against Wests Tigers, scoring a stunning four tries and making 142 metres down the flank.
3. Steve Matai (Sea Eagles): The Manly veteran was fearsome in both defence and attack during a gritty win over the Roosters, producing an assist for the lone try.

5. Reece Robinson (Raiders): Scored two tries in the first 17 minutes against South Sydney to pave the way for a big Raiders upset.
6. Kieran Foran (Sea Eagles): What a display! Returning earlier than most expected from a calf strain, Foran made a mockery of the ailment by running 143 metres and hitting like a back-rower against the Roosters.
7. Shaun Johnson (Warriors): Terrorised the Tigers, scoring an incredible try, assisting three more and running 82 metres in an electric display.

11. Anthony Watmough (Sea Eagles): Has started the season brilliantly, with his latest effort 169 metres and 35 tackles over a supercharged 74 minutes.
