Fortescue Premier Grade Team of the Week Round: 7

· WA Premier
by Rugby WA Media

As we near the halfway mark of the season players are coming out of the wood works to do what they do best, play some premier grade rugby.

The wet weather created the perfect platform for players to be tested in skill and technique as they hit the field for round 7.

Take a look at who stood out during round 7.


1. Adam Fullgrabe - Cottesloe
As predicted, Cottesloe’s slow start to the season is starting to turn. Helping their roll-on is their loose head prop who is always keen for a strong carry while being rock solid at scrum time.

2. Harry Scoble - UWA
The former Western Force hooker got through a mountain of work on Saturday. His high involvements around the field helped keep control of the students’ forward momentum.

3. Chris Kidd - Wests Scarborough
With eyes on a Perth Gold spot at the end of the season, Kidd is making every post a winner. He embraced his full 80mins on Saturday against a talented up and coming front row from Associates.

4. Jacob Buist - Perth Bayswater
The 150+ Premier games veteran provided a trade-mark performance in the wet on Saturday. Buist got through a mountain of tackles and was always willing to attack the opposition breakdown.

5. Connor Seve - Wests Scarborough
In an unfamiliar role for the young attacking lock, Seve was required to be the rock in defence for the boars on Saturday. As Associates kept on coming late in the game, it was Seve who led the line up and put on some crucial hits to stifle momentum.

6. Joseph Annan - Perth Bayswater
In conditions that suited his game style, the Baysie 6 did not stop throughout the stop-start match-up. In both attack and defence, Annan put himself in the middle of play and kept the pressure on the travelling Brothers.

7. Ben Calder - Nedlands
In a similar performance, the premier grade stalwart got himself in the middle of every difficult play. Field position was key for Nedlands and this man fought tooth and nail for every inch.

8. Tobias Hoskins - Cottesloe
Running into brick walls was the name of the game against a very physical Palmyra. Hoskins put his hand up for his fair share in a season turning match for the gulls.

9. Nathan Roberts - Nedlands
Showing that his game is not just flare and running, the 58-year-old scrum half changed tact against the Roodogs bringing a deadly long kicking game to the party.

10. Lua Koiatu - Kalamunda
Changes in the pivot role at Kalamunda clearly doesn’t upset the dynamics of the team. The former Western Force U19s player took control of the game with careful passing in the wet and a stealth kicking game.

11. Thomas Fifitatovo - Cottesloe
Fifitatovo’s dancing feet were just what the doctor ordered to get in behind the Paly defence line. His exciting ball carries provided much needed momentum for the gulls.

12. Caleb Young - UWA
A change of tactics in the wet showed that there is more to Young’s game than kicking and passing. Deciding to carry the ball in the wet to get in behind enemy’s lines proved too difficult for the Cavs to handle.

13. Kitione Nairuba - Kalamunda
Nairuba showed his all-round class by producing much of the same in very difficult conditions. He consistently finds space for the rest of the Bulls attack to feed off.

14. Kameli Naisiroki - Southern Lions
Naisiroki not only provided flair and finishing touches, but he was also happy to put his hand up for some hard carries in order to get his team going forward.

15. Usaia Ralulu - Kalamunda
Showing that he is on track for a Perth Gold spot at the end of the season, Ralulu produced much of the same against ARKs on the weekend. Every opportunity is taken when he is near the ball.
