Cowboys, Eels take prime position in Team of the Week

Another victory for Todd Payten's Cowboys not only saw them climb up the Telstra Premiership ladder but also dominate voting for the Team of the Week with five players selected in the squad.

Scott Drinkwater, Valentine Holmes, Reece Robson, Jeremiah Nanai and Jason Taumalolo were all impressive as North Queensland downed the Dragons and topped the voting for their respective positions as a result.

Elsewhere, Wests Tigers five-eighth Adam Doueihi joined Sharks playmaker Nicho Hynes in the halves after steering their respective teams to victory, while Team of the Week regulars Joseph Manu, Joseph Tapine and Isaiah Papali'i were voted in.

Jacob Kiraz's hat-trick against his former side saw the Bulldog land one of the wings with Maika Sivo one of three Eels (along with Junior Paulo and Papali'i) to be named in the side after their strong win over the defending premiers.
