Super League Dream Team Hot & Cold: Super 8s round 7

The final round of Dream Team is here, who could be that all important player?

Hot 🔥

Chris Hill – Warrington Wolves – Prop

Hill was everywhere against Wigan, making 152 Metres, 35 Tackles and scoring one Try. Chris earned 87 Super League Dream Team points, the most of any Prop in round six and the fourth highest of any player. If it hadn’t been for an inspired Wigan comeback, Hill could have taken home man of the match. Warrington now turn their attentions to Hull FC who will be no easy Challenge. With the Prop in fine form, with three tries in his last five Super 8s games, Hill could be a game changer for the Wire.

Liam Farrell – Wigan Warriors – Second Row

Farrell has had a great return after four months out. The game against Warrington was no different, with the Second Row making 149 Metres, 35 Tackles and assisting a try. Farrell’s 68 Dream Team points were the fourth highest of any Second Row in round six. Wigan’s comeback was inspired and showed what they can do heading into the playoffs. Wigan host Catalans on Friday, a team they have already beaten twice in Super League this year. The Dragons have only won one of their last five Super 8s games.

Stevie Ward – Leeds Rhinos – Second Row

The Rhinos were handed a shock defeat by Huddersfield on Sunday, the first in their Qualifiers campaign. Despite that, the Leeds pack piled in the points. Stevie Ward scored 73 Dream Team points, the second highest of any Second Row. The Rhinos will face their toughest test in the Qualifiers when they host top of the table and newly promoted Leigh Centurions on Thursday.

Cold ❄️

Luke Dorn – Castleford Tigers – Full Back

Dorn wasn’t his usual self against Catalans, making just 20 Metres and six Tackles as well as an Error for one of Catalans’ Tries. Dorn did get an Assist but ended up with 12 Dream Team points, the joint lowest of any Full Back in round six. Castleford face Widnes in the final round of the Super 8s which is Luke Dorn’s last game before retiring.

Stefan Ratchford – Warrington Wolves – Stand Off

Warrington were beaten by 12 man Wigan and now face Hull in the decider for the League leaders’ Shield. Ratchford gained 67 Metres, gave away 2 Penalties and was Yellow carded. Ratchford was awarded just 11 Dream Team points in round 6, the second lowest of any player classes as a Stand Off. Playing a Full Back hurts Ratchfords Dream Team value, and playing against Hull on Friday will be a tough challenge.

Patrick Ah Van – Widnes Vikings – Winger

Ah Van made 94 Metres and scored a Try which was a good stat line for the Winger, but was then sent off. The winger scored 23 Dream Team points which is towards the lower end this week. Ah Van and the Vikings play Castleford in round 7 and will be missing the influential Kevin Brown after his ban, so the Widnes attack will be down on numbers, especially with how good Brown is at getting the ball out to the wings.

Dorn made just 20 Metres against Catalans

Two players received bans during round 6 and won't pick up any Dream Team points:
