3. Johnathan Thurston
Simply outstanding. Was a constant menace for the Sea Eagles and his counter attack in particular cost Manly on numerous occasions.
2. Lachlan Coote
Was rock solid at the back and was excellent in attack, highlighted by setting up Kane Linnett in the first half with a superb offload.
1. Ben Hannant
Put his hand up time after time and laid the platform for the Cowboys with his strong carries.
