3. Mitchell Pearce
Pearce was clinical in controlling this one with a professional kicking game as well as a try assist, line break, try, four tackle busts and 24 tackles in defence.
2. Boyd Cordner
A strong running game and a big tackle in the context of this one gets Cordner the two points. 165 running metres, a line break and three tackle busts tonight as well as a big try saving tackle on Dane Gagai in the second half when the game was in the balance at 12-6.
1. Ken Sio
This was a tough choice. Keary was great for the Roosters but 6 missed tackles soured an otherwise strong outing. But for the Knights, credit is due for wingers Nathan Ross and Sio. Ross ran for over 200 metres but Sio's try, line break and 218 running metres was impressive. He also won the battle with Tupou in the air.
