Junior Sa’u (Salford)
Salford travel to St Helens tonight looking to inflict more home woe on the Saints – and if they manage to do it, expect Junior Sa’u to have played a key role. He’s scored an incredible eight tries in the Red Devils’ last three matches, and is in the form of his Salford career to date.
Scott Taylor (Hull)
The big prop returns to his former club tonight looking to move Hull level on points with league leaders Warrington. Taylor has produced the best run of form in perhaps his whole career this season, and is crucial to Lee Radford’s side with the amount of minutes he is going through. Incidentally, we spoke to him ahead of Friday night’s game – and you can hear what Taylor had to say right here.
Max Jowitt (Wakefield)
A number of men have been crucial to Wakefield’s upturn in form – and whilst one Trinity youngster in Tom Johnstone is grabbing the headlines, it’s another who we’ve chosen to focus on here. Max Jowitt has been a real revelation for the Wildcats since cementing his place in the side at fullback – and expect him to be pivotal again on Sunday when they face table-toppers Warrington.
Michael Lawrence (Huddersfield)
Lawrence has come in for praise from Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson this week: and it’s not hard to see why. The big forward is really delivering and helping to claw the Giants out of the hole they dug for themselves at the start of the season. However, they will need him to be at his very best on Saturday as they face a daunting-looking trip to Perpignan to face Catalans Dragons.
Daryl Clark (Warrington)
With so many big names impressing at Warrington, it could be easy to overlook the performances of the 2014 Man of Steel. However, he seems to have really settled at the Wolves now after an up and down first year, and Clark looks to be nearing his very best once again.
