Kiwi Power Rankings – Rd 15

Each week kiwileaguecentral.com will rank the top 10 Kiwis in the NRL right now, with a rolling Power Rankings system. Here’s how things sit after Round 15. (Main photo: photosport.nz).

10. Jordan Rapana (-1)

Sat out Round 15 with a bye.

9. Tuimoala Lolohea (-1)

Struggled to get involved at the same level he has in previous weeks, with only 11 carries for 77 metres. Missed three tackles but did make a line break.

8. Ben Matulino (+2)

With Jacob Lillyman away on State of Origin duty, Matulino was the only senior prop in the Warriors’ side. Led by example with 131 metres and 30 tackles.

7. Shaun Johnson (=)

Battled a leg injury the whole game, which limited his running impact. But he came to life when it counted to score the Warriors’ only try, which in the end got them home 12-10 over the Roosters.

6. Simon Mannering (=)

This was a game made for Mannering; tough, grinding and no quarter given. The Kiwi captain had 108 metres and made 53 tackles in an 80-minute showing.

5. Manu Ma’u (=)

Played the full match, carrying the Steeden 14 times for 103 metres. Was deservedly awarded Man of the Match honours as well.

4. Kevin Proctor (=)

Forty four tackles without a single miss, and averaged over 10 run metres per carry.

3. Jason Taumalolo (=)

Sat out Round 15 with a bye.

2. Tohu Harris (=)

Named at five-eighth again, but played mostly like the world-class forward he is. Kicked a penalty goal and threatened with many of his carries.

1. Jesse Bromwich (=)

Carried the ball 21 times, dwarfing any other player in the match in that particular category. Powered through for 172 metres, playing all but nine minutes.

Knocking on the door of the top 10: Issac Luke, Elijah Taylor, Solomone Kata
