Team of the week: round 15

by staff

The NSW Waratahs were the only Australian conference side to register a win in round 15, but in the losing sides there were some standout performances.

Key Performances

Samu Kerevi – Is improving with every game, which is a scary thought for the opposition as Kerevi is just 21 years of age. Making a game high 138 metres gained, three line breaks and seven tackle busts to go with his try in the opening half.

Dane Haylett-Petty – Has been a shining light in what has been a year to forget for the Western Force. Haylett-Petty threatened the defensive line numerous times, making 123 metres from his 13 runs, as well as showing how effective he can be with the boot.

Taqele Naiyaravoro – It was a battle of the flying Fijians, with Taqele Naiyaravoro facing off against Crusaders winger Nemani Nadolo on Saturday night. Taqele showed his worth, scoring a double and was solid in defence. Will we see him in a Qantas Wallabies jersey later this year?
