Big Sam Mataora collected his third Players' Player award in five appearances this season against the Melbourne Storm.

He again provided plenty of punch through the middle, and put in his longest shift to date with the Knights, playing for 63 minutes.

The most impressive part of his game, however, was that despite the high workrate he missed none of the tackles he attempted.
