Team of the Week: Round 25
A trio of Panthers, Cowboys and Rabbitohs and the Wests Tigers' starting front row headline NRL.com's Team of the Week for Round 25.
1. Greg Inglis (Rabbitohs)
The Rabbitohs skipper continued his run of good form with a try and try assist in Souths' 22-point win over the Knights.
2. Jordan Rapana (Raiders)
Rapana was at his destructive best – scoring a hat-trick and making 256 metres – in the Raiders' high-scoring win over the Sea Eagles.
3. Tyrone Peachey (Panthers)
Peachey's long winding runs helped his side burn the Titans through the middle all game long in Penrith's crucial one-point win on Saturday.
4. Tom Opacic (Broncos)
Brisbane rookie Opacic outplayed opposite centre Will Chambers and was rewarded with two tries in Brisbane's 10-point win in Melbourne.
5. Alex Johnston (Rabbitohs)
Johnston was a thorn in the side of the Knights' outside backs on Sunday, scoring two tries.
6. Mitchell Moses (Wests Tigers)
Brilliant performances from Moses and halves partner Luke Brooks kept the Wests Tigers' season alive in their comeback 12-point win over the Warriors.
7. Johnathan Thurston (Cowboys)
Thurston's return to Belmore saw him put his old Bulldogs side to the sword by orchestrating North Queensland's eight-point win.
8. Aaron Woods (Wests Tigers, captain)
The Wests Tigers skipper's best game of the season coincided with him scoring one try and setting up another against the Warriors.
9. Peter Wallace (Panthers)
Wallace's move to hooker continues to pay dividends for the Panthers, with the veteran able to control Penrith's 15-14 win over the Titans from the middle.
10. Sauaso Sue (Wests Tigers)
The Samoan international capped off an unlikely weekend for Tigers props when he crossed for two tries in Auckland.
11. Ethan Lowe (Cowboys)
Lowe crashed past the big Bulldogs defence for a brace of tries at their spiritual home Belmore Sportsground.
12. Sam Thaiday (Broncos)
Twerking on coach Wayne Bennett aside, Thaiday continued his barnstorming form against the might of the Storm.
13. Paul Gallen (Sharks)
It's no coincidence the return of Cronulla's skipper this week coincided with the Sharks ending their month-long winless streak with a 37-12 victory over the Roosters, with Gallen scoring a try and making a game-high 213 run metres.
14: Jason Taumalolo (Cowboys)
A double century of metres and a four-pointer is quickly becoming the norm for the New Zealand international.
15. Matt Moylan (Panthers)
The Panthers skipper had a hand in both his team's tries and kicked the match-winning field goal at the death against the Titans.
16. Kenny Edwards (Eels)
Edwards' quick tap try alone should justify his selection in this side, but that would ignore the fact he turned the Eels' 12-point win over the Dragons on its head with 158 metres and two line breaks from the bench.
17. Adam Reynolds (Rabbitohs)
The Souths halfback had the ball on the string in Newcastle, producing three try assists.
