Huddersfield Giants vs Leeds Rhinos – Kyle Wood

Wood Huddersfield

Kyle Wood controlled the game while playing at hooker and Leeds couldn’t slow him down around the ruck.

The playmaker is starting to find some real form at Huddersfield, and when Jamie Ellis is back fit, the Giants could be a real force.

Batley Bulldogs vs Catalans Dragons – Vincent Duport


Two good tries and a fine assist amid an impressive all-round display from the French international centre.

With Krisnan Inu set to miss the season, Duport has an even bigger role to play.

Castleford Tigers vs Salford Red Devils – Paul McShane


McShane rose to the challenge of starting at scrum-half, providing composure and control for Daryl Powell’s side.

Luke Gale best watch out!

Oldham vs Warrington – Ben Currie

Currie Warrington

Ben Currie was the game’s standout player from start to finish and had a hand in just about everything the Wire did well.

Warrington will be hoping any potential suitors in the NRL weren’t watching this one.

Dewsbury vs Wigan – Anthony Gelling

Gelling Wigan

Anthony Gelling stood out producing some of the games magical moments with dazzling runs and fancy footwork in attack leaving defenders all at sea at times.

Hep Cahill really stood up for the Vikings and helped nullify Halifax’s valiant efforts.

A big member of Widnes’ squad, they need to keep him fit.

St Helens vs Hull FC – Danny Houghton


Plenty of outstanding candidates for Hull but Danny Houghton is the ultimate definition of talisman – the hooker was incredible.

Wakefield vs Toulouse – Tom Johnstone

Johnstone Wakefield 2

Another impressive outing for Tom Johnstone, whose reputation continues to grow and grow.

Will the Four Nations be just too soon for the Wildcats winger?
