See which Wests Tigers players made the Team of the Week for Round 25 following the Club's 36-24 upset win over the New Zealand Warriors on Sunday.

*  *  *  *  *

1. Greg Inglis (South Sydney Rabbitohs) 

The South Sydney Rabbitohs skipper continued his run of good form with a try and try assist in Souths' 22-point win over the Newcastle Knights.

2. Jordan Rapana (Canberra Raiders)

Rapana was at his destructive best — scoring a hat-trick and making 256 metres — in the Canberra Raiders' high-scoring win over the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles. 

3. Tyrone Peachey (Panthers)

Peachey's long winding runs helped his side burn the Gold Coast Titans through the middle all game long in the Penrith Panthers' crucial one-point win on Saturday.

4. Tom Opacic (Brisbane Broncos)

Brisbane Broncos rookie Opacic outplayed opposite centre Will Chambers and was rewarded with two tries in Brisbane's 10-point win over the Melbourne Storm.

5. Alex Johnston (South Sydney Rabbitohs)

South Sydney Rabbitohs winger Johnston was a thorn in the side of the Newcastle Knights' outside backs on Sunday, scoring two tries. 

6. Mitchell Moses (Wests Tigers)

Brilliant performances from Moses and halves partner Luke Brooks kept the Wests Tigers' season alive in their comeback 12-point win over the New Zealand Warriors. 

7. Johnathan Thurston (Cowboys)

Thurston's return to Belmore saw him put his old Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs side to the sword by orchestrating the North Queensland Cowboys' eight-point win.

8. Aaron Woods (Wests Tigers, captain)

The Wests Tigers skipper's best game of the season coincided with him scoring one try and setting up another against the New Zealand Warriors.

9. Peter Wallace (Penrith Panthers)

Wallace's move to hooker continues to pay dividends for the Penrith Panthers, with the veteran able to control Penrith's 15-14 win over the Gold Coast Titans from the middle. 

10. Sauaso Sue (Wests Tigers) 

The Samoan international capped off an unlikely weekend for Wests Tigers props when he crossed for two tries in Auckland against the New Zealand Warriors.

11. Ethan Lowe (North Queensland Cowboys)

Lowe crashed past the big Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs defence for a brace of tries at their spiritual home Belmore Sportsground. 

12. Sam Thaiday (Brisbane Broncos)

Twerking on Coach Wayne Bennett aside, Thaiday continued his barnstorming form against the might of the Melbourne Storm on Friday night.

13. Paul Gallen (Cronulla Sharks)

It's no coincidence the return of Cronulla's skipper this week coincided with the Cronulla Sharks ending their month-long winless streak with a 37-12 victory over the Sydney Roosters, with Gallen scoring a try and making a game-high 213 run metres.


14: Jason Taumalolo (North Queensland Cowboys)

A double century of metres and a four-pointer is quickly becoming the norm for the New Zealand international, as he again showed against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

15. Matt Moylan (Penrith Panthers) 

The Penrith Panthers skipper had a hand in both his team's tries and kicked the match-winning field goal at the death against the Gold Coast Titans. 

16. Kenny Edwards (Parramatta Eels) 

Edwards' quick tap try alone should justify his selection in this side, but that would ignore the fact he turned the Parramatta Eels' 12-point win over the St. George-Illawarra Dragons on its head with 158 metres and two line breaks from the bench. 

17. Adam Reynolds (South Sydney Rabbitohs)

The Souths halfback had the ball on the string in Newcastle, producing three try assists.
