Player of the round: Will Genia. The Wallabies halfback is back, finding his form at the right time of the season. Was a match winner against the Lions at Suncorp Stadium, involved in everything.
Try of the round: Chris Feauai-Sautia. The perfect way to start a Super Rugby career, making the break and looping around Genia to score a try on debut, and with his first serious touch.
