Robbie Farah celebrates a try after an emotional week.

Two Broncos halves, a couple of departing captains, a Tigers trio and resurgent back-rowers headline's Round 25 Team of the Week. 

1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (Roosters)

He may be off to the Warriors next season but the Roosters are getting full value out of Roger Tuivasa-Sheck this year, with the fullback continuing a sensational season with three try assists and 10 tackle breaks in the Tricolours' 46-10 win over the Sea Eagles.

2. David Nofoaluma (Wests Tigers)

In the Tigers' final game at Nofoaluma's local Campbelltown the winger came up with 217 metres, a try assist and seven tackle breaks in his side's big win over the Warriors.

3. Justin Hodges (Broncos)

In a well-rounded performance from the Broncos skipper, Hodges came up with three try assists and 113 metres as Brisbane beat South Sydney. 

4. Tim Simona (Wests Tigers)

A constant threat on the Tigers' left-edge against the Warriors, Simona came up with 191 metres, a try and four tackle breaks.

5. Daniel Tupou (Roosters)

Scored a hat-trick in a 16-minute period against Manly, and finished the game with 162 metres.

6. Anthony Milford (Broncos)

In a man-of-the-match performance against Souths Milford ran for 249 metres, made three line breaks and scored two tries.

7. Ben Hunt (Broncos)

Scoring his first NRL hat-trick Hunt confirmed he is one of the game's best halfbacks by setting up a further two tries and breaking four tackles against the Rabbitohs.

8. Jesse Bromwich (Storm)

A huge factor in the Storm's eight-point win over the Cowboys, Bromwich came up with 214 metres and 37 tackles against a dominant North Queensland pack. 

9. Robbie Farah (Wests Tigers)

In what was a tumultuous week for the Tigers' skipper, Farah put it all behind him in his team's 34-point win over the Warriors by producing three try assists, two line breaks and a try.

10. Adam Blair (Broncos)

It's rare that a front-rower has three line break assists in one game but that's exactly how it panned out for Broncos prop Blair in his side's 47-12 win over South Sydney. 

11. Dave Taylor (Titans)

For all his faults, Taylor proved the match-winner in the Titans' two-point win over the Dragons after coming up with two tries and 11 tackle breaks. 

12. Boyd Cordner (Roosters)

Statistics don't always paint a proper picture especially in the case of Roosters back-rower Boyd Cordner, who absolutely starred in the Roosters' huge win over Manly. 

13. Trent Merrin (Dragons)

Despite his team's atrocious two-point loss to the Titans, Merrin was a shining light with 141 metres and 30 tackles. 


14. Kurt Gidley (Knights)

In his 250th NRL match and his final game at Hunter Stadium Gidley repaid the Newcastle faithful with a try and a try assist in the Knights' two-point loss to the Bulldogs.

15. Agnatius Paasi (Titans)

In the best performance of his young NRL career, Paasi was named Man of the Match in the Titans' 28-26 win over the Dragons thanks to his try, 190 metres and five tackle breaks.

16. Frank Pritchard (Bulldogs)

The Bulldogs back-rower was a scary prospect for the Knights' right-edge, coming up with a try and 154 metres. 

17. David Shillington (Raiders)

In his final home game for the Raiders, Shillington's man-of-the-match efforts in Canberra's 16-point win over Penrith was almost capped off with a try – having being denied twice – in a performance otherwise headlined by his 131 metres and 40 tackles.
