Here it is – the G&GR writers’ Super Rugby team of the week for round 7.

scott sio profile1. Scott Sio

Great to see a young prop bursting onto the scene like this.

moore team pic2. Stephen Moore

Other than a couple of (barely) squinty throws he was impressive as usual.

dan palmer brumbies3. Dan Palmer

Powerfully anchored a dominant scrum – the Brumbies’ key weapon.

mcmeniman profile4.Hugh McMeniman

His impact is just outstanding, week in and week out.

james horwill5. James Horwill

Back to being the Reds’ go-to man – rekindling the intensity needed to win big games.

kimlin profile6. Peter Kimlin

Putting in his best year to date, just in time to move to France.

gill profile7. Liam Gill

Huge impact before his injury – unfairly treated by ref.

ben mowen8. Ben Mowen

Still hasn’t put a foot wrong this season as he continues to lead from the front.

will genia profile9. Will Genia

Is it my failing memory or could he always kick that long? GAGR Man of the Round

quade cooper profile10. Quade Cooper

Despite questions over his knee and confidence, showed more of what we remember.

alfie mafi11. Alfie Mafi

Digby-like when he gets hold of the ball – always beating a tackle

lealiifano profile12. Christian Lealiifano

Six goals and a pressure kick to win the match. Looking happy at the top level

2013 NSW Waratahs Headshots13. Adam Ashley-Cooper

Some old fashioned tradmark runs bringing back the meat pies. Doing the extra yards.

dom shipperley portrait14. Dom Shipperley

Back with the dangerous pace and bustle.

israel folou profile15. Israel Folau

Just magnificent under the high ball and a threat to the line. As for the kicking…
