NRL.com Name Four Rabbitohs In Team Of The Week

Four of the seventeen players named in the NRL.com Team of the Week have come from the Rabbitohs this week after a brilliant performance against the Penrith Panthers on Sunday.

While we at Rabbitohs HQ feel the Team of the Week was the 1-17 Rabbitohs who took the field on Sunday, the NRL.com have named the following players as the best performers of Round 17:

 

1. Jarryd Hayne (Titans)

2. Josh Addo-Carr (Storm)

3. Curtis Scott (Storm)

4. Ricky Leutele (Sharks)

5. Alex Johnston

His 90-metre opportunist's try sparked a Rabbitohs revival and by the time he had finished with the Panthers he had become the ninth player in South Sydney history to score five tries in a single game.

6. Cameron Munster (Storm)

7. Adam Reynolds

The finest performance of his season by far paved the way for a dominant South Sydney victory. Officially credited with two try assists but had his hand in almost all of them, his kicking game repeatedly keeping the Panthers under pressure.

 

8. Andrew Fifita (Sharks)

9. Cameron Smith (Storm)

10. Aaron Woods (Wests Tigers)

11. Angus Crichton

Another starring role from the Rabbitohs tyro, sparking a try for Johnston with a line break and finishing with 144 run metres with six tackle busts.

 

12. Wade Graham (Sharks)

13. Nathan Brown (Eels)

 

Interchange

14. Michael Morgan (Cowboys)

15. Ryan James (Titans)

16. Luke Lewis (Sharks)

17. Sam Burgess

Although he spent 10 minutes in the sin-bin Burgess again inspired his teammates that was as wholehearted in the closing minutes as it was at the start of the game. Scored a try himself, provided the final pass for one of Johnston's five tries and sparked the winger's second with an offload to Cody Walker in centre-field.
