It was no surprise that Nathan Ross was named Players' Player in Round 16, as he bagged his first NRL hat-trick.

It was also Ross' first NRL match at fullback and he took the opportunity with both hands, racking up a massive 232 metres from 15 runs.

He would also no doubt be pleased with his defensive game, as he missed no tackles.
