The Holden Cup lived up to it’s reputation in Round 20 with the Roosters, Sharks, Broncos and Dragons all scoring 40 points or more, the Titans scoring 52 and the Cowboys putting 70 past the Warriors. With all these high scoring games came a lot of great performances, making our job this week a tough one.

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.
