We go through the stats and pick our stand-out XIII from the latest round of matches in the Betfred Super League…

1. Lachlan Coote (Hull Kingston Rovers)

There were plenty of contenders for the full-back role this week, with Jai Field again excelling for Wigan Warriors and Josh Thewlis running in a hat-trick for Warrington Wolves.

But it is Coote who gets the nod in our team after scoring a try and setting up two others as Hull Kingston Rovers beat Wakefield Trinity 32-10, along with making 136 metres, two clean breaks and three tackle busts.

2. Derrell Olpherts (Castleford Tigers)

Fellow winger Jason Qareqare was the one who grabbed the highlight-reel try for Cas in the 30-10 win over a youthful St Helens side, but Olpherts played a big role with a double as well.

His two tries for the Tigers came in a game where he carried for 105 metres, making two clean breaks and busting nine tackles as well.

3. Mahe Fonua (Castleford Tigers)

A try and an assist for Fonua helped Castleford on their way to victory at home to St Helens in one of the opening games of the round on Friday.

The half-back provided two assists against Wakefield as well as carrying for 75 metres with the ball in hand, making three tackle busts in the process.

7. Riley Dean (Warrington Wolves)

The 20-year-old formed part of an unfamiliar half-back pairing with Peter Mata’utia but came to the fore in the win over Huddersfield.

Dean was on hand to assist four of Warrington’s tries at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, kicked four goals and provided an all-round composed display.

8. Kaide Ellis (Wigan Warriors)
