WITH all the upset action from last round and player movements during the week, League fans and punters around the globe have maintained the enthusiasm throughout. Conversation around the water cooler has been dominated by who?s going where, Trent?s tickle on PJ, the abomination at Penrith Park and the Tiger?s chances of finally making the Top 8.

LEAGUE Wrap: Round 18, 8-10 July 2005
Back rowers Nathan Hindmarsh (Eels) and Ben Kennedy (Sea Eagles), and half back Stacey Jones (Warriors) are the big movers in this week?s Leagueunlimited.com Player Awards. All three players have made an impression and are within striking distance of the competition front runners.
THIS week?s sheet has some classy names on it even though 33 rep players were stood down for Origin III this coming Wednesday night. ?TBA? passed his fitness test but failed to raise the eye of our Live Updaters during his cameo, apart from the little 35m dash up-field. So here we give you the Round 17 League Unlimited Team of the Week which would take more stopping than a player manager before June 30.
