A Storm star joins the hundred club, the most popular player in Fantasy racked up a huge score but faces suspension while four wingers tackle-busted their way to massive scores in round 14.


Jahrome Hughes finished with a neat 100 after what his coach assessed as probably the best game of the halfback's career. In the absence of leaders, Camerons Smith and Munster, Hughes pumped out almost 500 kick metres to go with a try, try assist, try save and seven busts.

David Nofoaluma (93) headed the cast of high-scoring wingers with a try, 14 busts and 257 metres in a narrow win over Canterbury.

Nick Cotric (75 with two tries and 14 busts), Jordan Pereira (74 with 12 busts) and Corey Thompson (72 with a try and 13 busts) joined in the fun in a big week for wingers.

Api Koroisau (88 with a try and 53 tackles) has proved either a brilliant hold or a terrible sell for all the coaches who were faced with his recent injury drama.

Near untouchable Nofoaluma offloads for a Garner try

Payne Haas racked up 84 despite getting a 10-minute rest but faces 2-3 weeks out due to a crusher tackle in a huge blow for the 41 per cent of teams that own him.

Michael Morgan (81) did his best to drag his team over the line with two tries, Ben Hunt (77) was back playing 80 minutes at hooker where his scoring is elite and teammate Cam McInnes (72) put in his best score in a game that included no time at hooker.

Relive the final moments of Knights v Sea Eagles

Luke Garner (73) bagged a double, Tohu Harris (72) has the second-most points of any 2RF this year and is still in only 4 per cent of teams, and Luciano Leilua's (69) impressive run continued.


A flu limited the minutes of Raymond Faitala-Mariner (15), ending his strong run of scores since moving up to 80-minute games. A shift back to the wing and no tries was bad news for Tommy Talau (16) owners.

Matt Dufty's run of heavy scoring took a dip with no attacking stats on offer in his 15 in the wet against the Eels.

Roosters five-eighth Luke Keary (16) went off with a broken rib, while teammate Mitch Aubusson (15) broke a wrist and Lachlan Lam (26) suffered a syndesmosis injury.

Latrell Mitchell (20) was probably about due a quiet game after a strong fortnight, Tyrone Peachey (21) got his lowest minutes since round four and a stunning try wasn't enough to save the score of teen Cowboys sensation Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow (21).

Sam McIntyre (23) got his lowest minutes in six weeks, while Bayley Sironen (23) was quiet off the bench.

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck scored one try and saved another but still only managed 29, while Ryan Papenhuyzen (31) had a fantastic game in real life without racking up any stats of note.

Mitch Pearce (38) has consecutive poor scores since Blake Green's arrival, Reagan Campbell-Gillard's (34) purple patch appears to be over and Damien Cook's (49) scoring slump continues.
