Round 18 Team of the Week

Fullback: Billy Slater (Storm) - 2 tries, 186 metres Honourable mention: Wade McKinnon (Warriors) - 1 try, 186 metres.

Two weeks back from injury and Slater is back to his scintillating best. He had some tough competition this week though with McKinnon putting in another super effort.

Wing: Nick Youngquest (Panthers) - 2 tries, 3 goals. Honourable mention: Michael Robertson (Sea Eagles) - 2 tries; Eric Grothe (Eels) - 122 metres gained.

Had a great game for the Panthers who were searching desperately for a win. Looks to be one of the quicker players in the comp also, showing a clean pair of heels on a couple of occasions.

Centre: Steve Menzies (Sea Eagles) - 2 tries. Honourable mention: Geoff Daniela (Panthers) - 2 tries; Krisnan Inu (Eels) - 3 goals; Anthony Quinn (Storm) - 3 tries, Michael Jenning (Panthers).

Beaver came on from the bench and bagged himself a double as Bell went down with injury. The evergreen centre/backrower was at his best working well with Lyon down the right flank.

Centre: Simon Mannering (Warriors) - 2 tries, 200 metres gained, 2 line breaks.

Big game from Mannering who
