3. Cameron Smith
Cameron Smith quite simply just took control of this game when it mattered. Like he does best, he took the game into his own hands and created uncertainty for the defence. Manly had no answers for what Smith created and his calm and poise showed why he is the competitions best.
2. Jahrome Hughes
Jahrome Hughes has silenced a lot of questions being asked of him being the Storm's starting halfback, at least for now. Hughes came up with three kicks that lead to three Storm tries.
1. Jake Trbojevic
Coming off of off-season shoulder surgery, Jake Trbojevic was outstanding in a losing Manly side. He managed to play the 80 minutes despite there being questions he would even play this round and also made the most tackles out of any player in the game, with 49 all up.
