Nathan Ross was named Players' Player in Round 12 for his best NRL performance to date.

The livewire utility back found himself playing only his second first grade match at centre, but came up with one of the best individual performances in red and blue this year.

While 220 metres from 15 runs was impressive, it was the 9 tackle busts against one of the better defensive teams in the competition that stood out.
