Here are the best 13 Super League players of the Easter period, chosen by Mike Andrews and written by Sam Taylor.

Morgan Escare - Wigan Warriors

The full-back celebrated his new three-year deal with the Warriors with two fine displays. Escare showed his defensive capabilities with a fine tackle on compatriot Theo Fages. He then helped Wigan defeat Wakefield easily rounding opposite number Scott Grix. To add to this, he kicked six goals and drop goal over the two games

Liam Marshall - Wigan Warriors (Star Player)

The youngster continued his fine form with seven breaks and three tries, including an acrobatic effort in the corner and a late winner against Wakefield to make it nine tries in seven games since his debut against Warrington in March.

Vincent Duport - Catalans Dragons

The big powerful centre was the star for Catalans as they recorded two wins over the Easter period to move up to sixth in the table. Duport scored in the win against Huddersfield and then used his strength to overpower Gareth O’Brien for the first of two tries.

Carlos Tuimavave - Hull FC

The Samoan ensured that Hull won their first game in three with a 24-10 win against Leigh. He used his fancy footwork to score his first then finished of a superb team try after a break from Liam Watts.

Regan Grace - St Helens

The Welsh winger dazzled on debut against local rivals Wigan on Good Friday. He was Saints’ top metre-maker with 160m and made three clean breaks as well as scoring a try. Saints fans then had some long-awaited joy as Grace scored to make it an eight-point lead with only minutes to go to secure Sean Long and Jamahl Lolesi’s first victory as coaches.

Joel Moon - Leeds Rhinos

Joel Moon has made the scrum-half position his own in recent weeks with coach Brian McDermott preferring to use his illusive running game in the halves. He scored a brace in each of the games over Easter.

Luke Gale - Castleford Tigers

The Scrum half is at the heart of everything that Castleford do. He and his stand-off partner Ben Roberts ran riot in the first half against Wakefield to put them 36-12 up at half-time. Gale made three try assists over the weekend and kicked a 40/20.


Alex Walmsley - St Helens

St Helens struggled to make any metres against Wigan without only having three recognised props on the pitch. Walmsley was targeted by the Warriors defence but he bounced back against Castleford with a monstrous display causing them all sorts of problems down the middle.

Matt Parcell - Leeds Rhinos

Parcell continued to shine in the in-form Rhinos side to stake a claim of being the league’s best hooker. Previous performances have showed that Parcell is a tackling machine, however he showed he has skills with the ball scoring three tries.

Chris Hill - Warrington Wolves

Chris Hill is Mr. Consistency and the Wire captain led the Wolves to two wins to lift them off the bottom of the table to kickstart their season. He made 161 metres and 34 tackles against Widnes and then backed it up against Huddersfield with 143 metres and 39 tackles.

Junior Moors - Castleford Tigers

The Castelford second-rower, along with fellow Antipodean Jesse Sefe-Lafeo, have put fear in to the opposition all season long. He made over 100 metres against Wakefield and then led the forward pack against St Helens making 50 more metres than any of the Tigers forwards.

Zeb Taia - St Helens

The second rower caused many problems for the opposition. He either combined his footwork and strength to punch holes in the opposition defence or gave early ball to England international Mark Percival to use. Along with Regan Grace, Saints’ left side is starting to look formidable.

Benjamin Garcia - Catalans Dragons

Garcia put in a shift against Huddersfield with the forward making 91 metres. He then bettered that performance in Catalans thrashing off Salford with a mammoth performance making 133 metres.
