With their season on the line the Wests Tigers stood tall at the SCG on Sunday and their dominant win over the Dragons catapulted Benji Marshall and four of his team-mates into the Team of the Week for round 24.

Marshall romped away with 52 percent of the fans’ vote for best five-eighth after he turned back the clock with a dazzling display of footwork and finesse.

Benji’s halves partner Luke Brooks, centre Paul Momirovski, back-rower Luke Garner and centre David Nofoaluma also got the nod on the back of strong performances in the 42-14 triumph.

The Storm’s brilliant win over Manly secured Craig Bellamy’s men another minor premiership and saw Cameron Smith, Justin Olam and Nelson Asofa-Solomona get the fans’ vote for team of the week.

Interesting fact of the 14 hat tricks this season , we have three of them Fonua , Nofoaluma and Momorovski

True… still, I guess it shows the new found importance on strike players especially in the 3/4 line to regularly back up for set plays and also consistently find the turf in some of the most challenging of circumstances - perhaps even for some clubs an over reliance on certain types of set plays or players always demanding possession in good ball territory…

I’d reckon people like Oates, Kyle Feldt and Vunivalu would regularly feature in these lists for the above reasons … with the first two not necessarily playing in a backline that regularly lights up opposition teams.
