It was another incredible display of toughness that saw Wests Tigers lock forward Elijah Taylor awarded with this week's VB Hard Earned Effort of the Week.

Coming into the match with a split ear from last week's win over South Sydney, Taylor found himself again in the thick of it with a separate cut coming from his head early into the game.

Despite blood pouring out over his face, Taylor remained out there with bandages and a headgear, and continued to play on despite picking up a hand issue in the match as well.

Taylor is expected to be right to take on the Canberra Raiders next Sunday.
