Top performers

Abbas Miski recorded a huge 107-point total thanks to his try scoring heroics in Round 16. Miski scored more than a third of his yearly total (319) in just one game after scoring four tries, making four clean breaks and four offloads. It’s also the highest single score of the 2022 season, beating Matt Parcell’s Round 7 total of 101 points.

Hat-trick hero Leroy Cudjoe scored his best return of the season thanks to a 93-point total against Hull KR. Cudjoe recorded a try assist, six tackle busts, 206 run metres and three offloads to go with his three try-haul.

Meanwhile, Matt Parcell was at his consistent best after recording the third highest total of the round, despite being on the losing side on Sunday. Parcell’s 81 points came from a try, try assist, 37 tackles and 105 run metres. He now sits third in the overall points scoring this year.

Loose forwards Benjamin Garcia and Joe Westerman were at their industrial best on opposing sides yesterday – they scored 80 and 79 points respectively during a gruelling golden point contest.

There was also 70+ scores Daryl Clark, Derrell Olpherts, Alex Walmsley, Joe Burgess, Will Pryce, Danny Houghton and Deon Cross.

Fantasy Flops

Hull KR duo Ryan Hall and George King ended with single figure scores after both leaving the field injured in Round 16. Hall is the second highest scoring winger in Fantasy this year but fell victim to a rib injury which restricted his score to just three points, whilst prop George King finished with four points.

John Bateman was left out of the Wigan side for Friday’s match against Toulouse despite being named in the initial 21-man squad, leaving Fantasy owners without the services of the ever-reliable Bateman. His teammate Liam Farrell – the highest scoring player in Fantasy and a hugely popular captain's choice – also recorded a below par score after being brought off after just 34 minutes.

Looking ahead

Leeds Rhinos trio Zane Tetevano, Harry Newman and Bodene Thompson all picked up suspensions following Round 16 and will be unavailable this week. There were also bans for Elijah Taylor, Miteli Vulikjapani and Liam Watts.

The Round 17 deadline closes on Thursday 30 June, meaning transfers won’t be reset until Round 18 at Magic Weekend.
