Round 19 Team of the Week
Star halves, milestone men and bullocking back-rowers headline NRL.com's Team of the Week for Round 19.
1. Greg Inglis (Rabbitohs)
With the Origin period well and truly behind him, Inglis played arguably his best game of the year in South Sydney's 16-point win over the Dragons. Dominant in attack, Inglis's eight tackle breaks, two line break assists and a try assist proved a perfect foil for halfback Adam Reynolds to work with.
2. Lachlan Maranta (Broncos)
The Broncos winger proved again why he is keeping veteran Daniel Vidot in the Intrust Super Cup by scoring a hat-trick in Brisbane's 26-point win over the Wests Tigers.
3. Blake Ferguson (Roosters)
After being overshadowed by Warriors centre Solomone Kata earlier on in the year, Ferguson ensured it wouldn't happen again in his dominant performance against the New Zealand side. His 238 metres, try and six tackle breaks went on a long way to securing the Tricolours' fifth straight win.
4. Dylan Walker (Rabbitohs)
Walker's long range solo try from dummy-half will be on Souths' highlight reel at season's end while his defence kept opposite man Peter Mata'utia mostly quiet all night.
5. Marika Koroibete (Storm)
One of many stars in the Storm's 42-point victory over Penrith, Koroibete's tally of two tries and five tackle breaks was just the performance the Fijian flyer needed to get his season back on track.
6. Jarrod Mullen (Knights)
If not for Mullen's presence in the Knights' 28-point win over the Titans, Newcastle would have been hard pressed to get the win. His kicking game was especially essential as the playmaker stood tall in ordinary weather.
7. Cooper Cronk (Storm)
The Storm halfback had the ball on the string in his team's 42-point win over Penrith. Cronk took on the line as well with a couple of tries to go with two try assists and three line-break assists.
8. Kade Snowden (Knights)
Producing his best performance since re-signing with the Knights in May, Snowden's 10 tackle breaks and four offloads kept the ball rolling for Newcastle all game in their 30-2 win over the Gold Coast.
9. Cameron Smith (Storm)
In his 300th game, the Storm, Queensland and Australian skipper produced three try assists to cap off one of the biggest days in his illustrious career.
10. Andrew Fifita (Sharks)
Despite being embroiled in controversy at the end of regular time, Fifita otherwise starred for the Sharks in their golden point victory over the Raiders, producing 233 metres and five tackle breaks.
11. Alex Glenn (Broncos)
With two tries in Brisbane's 42-16 win over the Wests Tigers, Glenn absolutely dominated proceedings and with six tackle breaks was ridiculously hard to stop at times.
12. Josh Jackson (Bulldogs)
Looking dangerous every time he touched the ball in the Bulldogs' win over the Eels, Jackson duly won Man of the Match honours with his try and four tackle breaks the highlights of his best performance of the year.
13. Aidan Guerra (Roosters)
Scoring his team's first try in their 24-0 win over the Warriors, Guerra returned from the victorious Queensland Origin team to star for the Roosters.
14. Corey Oates (Broncos)
On the field for just 19 minutes, Oates made every second count with eight tackle breaks, two line breaks and 104 metres.
15. Johnathan Thurston (Cowboys)
Making it five Man of the Match awards from his past five Monday night games, Thurston's two try assists were vital in the Cowboys 18-point victory over Manly.
16. Frank Pritchard (Bulldogs)
One of the best supporting forwards in the game, Pritchard's two tries went a long way to securing the Bulldogs' 28-4 victory over Parramatta.
17. Anthony Milford (Broncos)
The Brisbane five-eighth didn't show the athletic prowess everyone is used to but did put forward a more balanced performance as he guided two of his teammates in for tries.
