On a memorable day for the Warriors in Tamworth their inspirational skipper Roger Tuivasa-Sheck was scoring tries at one end and stopping them at the other with last-ditch goal line defence.
RTS's effort to deny rival skipper Mitchell Pearce a try summed up the Warriors' desperation and got him the fans' vote as Youi Tackle of the Week for round 16.
Coming in a close second in the voting was a trysaver from Panthers winger Brian To'o on Tiger Tommy Talau while Moses Mbye and a Cowboys double team against the Sharks were also strong contenders but it was RTS who got the nod.

The Youi Tackle of the Week has the experts at NRL.com scouring the footage from each game of the round to offer up 4 nominations for you, the fans, to vote on.
What do you value more, a mid-field bone rattler or a last ditch effort try saver?
Is an epic hit to end a line break sprint better than a copybook tackle within inches of the line?
