3 - McKinnon: Everything you want in a fullback. Brilliant defensive positioning, great support play, heavily involved, safe as houses

2 - Heighington: Possibly one of his best games ever, high work rate as always but his work was all quality. IMO he benefitted from two short stints on the bench that kept him fresh

3 - Lui: Tough to split this between Marshall, Farah and Lui but I give the points to Lui for his long kicking game, simply brilliant.

I have to agree with Hybrid`s comments. No denying McKinnon was great, but Heighington played like the lunatic we need him to be. He ran the ball and defended with aggression, best game I`ve ever seen him play and if he keeps playing at that level he`d become one of the very best back rowers in the game.
He`s been hard done by only being selected as a bench player for country,he should play for NSW if he can maintain that form.
McKinnon also shocked me, but not plenty of others including Hybrid who had obviously been a lot more impressed with him than what I had been in Wade`s previous games in Wests Tigers colours.
Robert Lui didn`t shock me, I`ve got no doubt he`s a champion in the making and I`ve got no doubt that he and Benji are the best halves combination in the NRL.
Like everyone else very pleased to see Robbie Farah perform somewhere near his very best and Benji was oustanding once again, geez doesn`t he like putting on a show when playing the poor old Raiders.

This was really a hard choice. It was hard to pick a player, who did not deserve a point. Finally, I decided:-

3. Lui: He really shows what I think are the most important characteristics of a very good half-back. He exudes cheeky confidence and he never shuts up. Great kicking game and a great link in attack.
2. McKinnon: Many full-backs could learn from his positional play in both attack and defence. I hope he keeps fit as he is one of our best buys.
1. Galloway: Great leadership of the pack and showed the way to the very good youngsters around him. He keeps coming up with the big tackle or 10 metre run just when it is needed.

Was very tough today

3. Robbie Farah
2. Benji
1. Lui

also wanted to give points to McKinnon and Heighinton both outstanding,

and about 3 or 4 others did enough to get points most weeks!

You'd have given McKinnon 3 points just for being fit and edging Moltzen out of the position HT ;)
