Rhinos Most Valuable - Part 4 of 6
Posted by southstander on October 11 2006 - 10:53:27

GB Skipper at 9

Today we head into your top ten ranked Rhinos players for 2006, and all four of those who we look at today will still be playing for the Rhinos in 2007.

Your Player of the Season (POS) scores have been divided by the number of first team appearances to give us our list of top performing Rhinos players from one to twenty-six.

So far we've counted down to thirteen and today we look at twelve to nine.

We are now into the players who you feel should make the Rhinos starting thirteen, the players averaging 1.5 to 2.5 Man of the Match points per game. Players who you thought consistently performed well.

12th - Scott Donald - 1.57

Not without his early season critics, including yours truly, Scott has continually improved throughout the season and probably deserves another year. He was never going to be a direct replacement for the departed Calderwood or Bai and perhaps that is what too many of us expected.

Occasionally frail in defence, he has proved that he is a try scorer with seventeen tries in his twenty-eight games (a in the run-on thirteen).

Scott scored forty four POS points which saw him finish eighth in the table, however, his ever-presence reduced his average to 1.57.

11th - Ali Lauiti'iti - 1.96

Ali is one ofthose players who delights and frustrates in equal measure. When he is good he is very, very good; but when he is bad he's awful!

Still a player that I would rather have in my side than against me, Ali has figured in twenty-five games. Twelve of these were starts whereas thirteen were from the bench.

Ali scored seven tries but set up many, many more for his team-mates.

His forty-nine POS points averaged out at 1.96 per game meaning that you rated him in your top seven performers in each game that he played.

10th - Danny Williams - 2.00

Danny was one of the finds of the season and a bright light in the gloom of what ultimately was disappointing season.

Injury meant that he was unavailable for parts of the season but he still managed thirteen starts. He ran in seven Superleague XI tries including braces against Huddersfield and Les Catalans. He was also a cup king with five tries in two cup games.

This lad has quite a future and with a battle for places between Williams, Smith and Gibson, we are giving youngsters a chance.

Danny averaged exactly two points per game, you though he showed great promise.

9th - Jamie Peacock - 2.56

The GB skipper has been somewhat of a disappointment since his arrival from the Bulls for the start of the season. He's started twenty-five games at a mixture of prop forward and second row, looking far more comfortable in the latter.

It may be that he is taking some fitting into the Rhinos side after years of ruling the roost at Bradford, or maybe he's floundering in a side which doesn't collectively have the skill of his former side.

Jamie ran in just three tries in the season but still averaged 2.56 per game. He was always in your top seven, but never really made it into your top three. A steady first season but a lot more expected next year.

Next - 8th to 5th
