He wasn't able to force his way back into the Blues for the Origin series decider in Sydney but Latrell Mitchell took out the NRL Tackle of the Week for Round 15.

Mitchell garnered 36% of votes, with Newcastle prop James Gavet second (26%) for his dominant tackle that forced Brisbane's Tevita Pangai back into his own in-goal area in the Knights' 26-12 victory.

Manly winger Jorge Taufua (25%) finished narrowly behind Gavet for forcing Titans centre Jesse Arthars into a costly error in the Sea Eagles' 30-12 win on the Gold Coast.

Canberra backrower Elliott Whitehead scored 13% in voting in recognition of his superb tackle on a rampaging Peni Terepo in Darwin on Saturday night.
