While it was a deeply disappointing day at the office for the team as a whole, Dane Gagai put in a strong individual performance that saw him take the Players' Player award.

Shifting to the relatively unfamiliar position of left centre, Gagai racked up a massive 268 run metres, more than any other player on the field.

He was also the catalyst for Joe Wardle's try, tearing through the Tigers defence 40 metres out to set up a smart chip.
