5. Alex Mellor – Huddersfield Giants – Second Row

75 points

Mellor is the first Giants player on this list and the only player that started in the back line out of the top five scorers.

The forward featured at centre and looked like a natural for Huddersfield.

Alex made 143 metres, three tackle busts and two clean breaks.

Mellor’s highlight of the game was when he scored two tries in five minutes early in the second half.

4. Ukuma Ta’ai – Huddersfield Giants – Second Row

76 points

Ta’ai partnered Ikahihifo on Huddersfield’s front row and was the driving force behind the Giants.

The Tongan was extremely active in attack, making 182 metres from 22 carries, the most of any Giants player.

Ukuma added to his impressive metres with four tackle busts, one clean break and a try.

On defence, Ta’ai made 21 tackles, which may see the prop score low points if he is less productive when carrying the ball.

=2. Joshua Jones – Salford Red Devils – Centre

81 points

The versatile number three lined up at second row for the Devils in the victory over Huddersfield.

Jones made 34 tackles and 99 metres and added five tackle busts and one clean break.

Josh capped-off an impressive performance with a late try where he seemed to take half the Giants team over the line.

If Jones continues to play a versatile role, it is likely he will have another productive year in Dream Team.

=2. Adam Cuthbertson – Leeds Rhinos – Prop

81 points

Cuthbertson came off the bench to change the game for the Rhinos against Leigh on Friday night.

The prop scored the first try for Leeds and carried on how he started.

The 2015 Man of Steel finalist made 135 metres from 20 carries and three offloads.

Cuthbertson was a top option in Dream Team 2015. If the number 10 can reignite his 2015 form he is a steal at 150k.

1. Sebastine Ikahihifo – Huddersfield Giants – Prop

82 points

Ikahihifo is the second of two Giants props on this list.

The top points scorer of last week made 119 metres from 17 carries and 32 tackles.

The prop also made eight tackle busts and four offloads which is more than any other player on the pitch.

Ikahihifo has now scored 153 points from two games, at 100k he is a must have.
