This weeks League Unlimited Online Team of the Week is a real mix of players from a lot of clubs. No real club dominates the side, although the Roosters have the most with 4 players including Mullins, Fittler, Fitzgibbon and Minichiello. Surprise package of the round, Adam Mogg makes the starting line up pushing Lockyer to the bench. Sharks centre Paul Mellor partners Knights Matt Gidley in the centers. Roosters captain Brad Fittler forces his way into the six, and partners Bulldog Brent Sherwin in the halves. Sharks halfback Brett Kimmorly slots onto the bench, edging out the likes of Jones, Johns, and Berrigan. The bench consists of an untraditional two backs, which highlights the high scoring one sided games played out this week end.
The forward pack is strong with Bronco prop Shane Webcke backing up well and joins Knight Matt Parsons in the front row. In a weekend where no hooker shined Eagles number nine Jamie Goddard gets the nod. Warrior Ali Luaiti?iti put ina strong game against the Cowboys to join Rooster Craig Fitzgibbon and Eagles captain Steve Menzies in the back row. Big Warriors prop Mark Tookey joins Eels second rower Ian Hindmarsh on the bench.
