3. Jess Sergis (Dragons) 

One of the players of the round with a charging try in the second half, 171 metres and nine tackle busts. Sets up a big clash against Isabelle Kelly and the Roosters this week. 

4. Amber Pilley (Broncos)

Scored an impressive individual try and was busy for her team with 11 carries for 99 metres and three tackle busts. Also defensively sound with 10 tackles for 100% efficiency. 

5. Shakiah Tungai (Dragons)

Another consistent performance from the Dragons winger with nine runs for 92 metres. 

6.  Keeley Davis (Dragons)

Called in late for an ill Kimiora Nati but linked with Maddie Studdon well to set up a try and play an overall strong supportive game to her halves partner.

7. Ali Brigginshaw (Broncos)

Created a try to Annette Brander on the left edge before scoring one of her own and booting 178 kick metres and a forced drop out. 

8.  Maitua Feterika (Dragons)

Almost didn't play at all due to a logistical human error with the team's selection portal but proved one of the best players on the paddock with a crucial try, 20 carries for 191 metres and 15 tackles. 

9. Lavinia Gould (Broncos)

Recorded the fastest play-the-ball speed at 2.8 seconds per her seven carries and chimed in with 27 tackles and a line-break assist.

Led from the front with a dominant 124 running metres that included 44 post contact and 17 tackles. 

11. Onjeurlina Leiataua (Warriors)

A shining light for the Warriors in a beaten side to score their only try, record six tackle busts, 11 runs and 27 tackles. 

Warriors defence stands tall again

12. Hannah Southwell (Roosters)   

Bounced back from a head knock last week with a sound performance on the edge. Pulled off a try-saver close to the line in her 25-tackle display.

Another sound defensive display from the Warriors skipper with 39 tackles which included just one ineffective attempt from her side's overall count of 44.

14. Nita Maynard (Roosters)

Put in the hard yards with a game-high 48 tackles at an efficiency rate of 94.8% and tried her best with four carries out of dummy-half for the Tricolours. 

Hale and Nicholls stop a charging Apps

15. Amber Hall (Broncos)

Another bumper performance from the starting Broncos prop with 131 metres from 15 carries in a 35-minute stint. Her game-high 50 metres post contact also made her hard to handle against a tiring Roosters forward pack.

16. Kezie Apps (Dragons)

A captain's knock from the Dragons back-rower, who is enjoying a far better campaign with a fit bill of health under her belt. Caused havoc on the edges with seven tackle busts to go with 116 running metres and 25 tackles. 

17. Billy-Jean Ale (Warriors)

Looked hard to stop in her two brief stints to record eight runs for 90 metres and 14 tackles.
