Plenty of players wearing red and blue put in a great performance against the Tigers, but it was surprise package Sam Mataora that came away with the Players' Player award.

In what was only his sixth apperance for the Club Mataora terrorised the Tigers through the middle, averaging almost 10 metres per run.

While he was only on the field for 20 minutes, the Cook Islands international clearly impressed his teammates enough to win the award.
