Another tough week of Team of the Week selections after plenty of great performances from across Round 17, with five of our best 17 running for more than 200 metres.

As a reminder, we’re unable to watch every NYC game each week, so these Team of the Week articles rely heavily on the statistics provided by NRL.com.
