Who stood out and who caught the eye across NRL Round 12? Tony "Moley" Adams picks out his top five performers from another big weekend of footy.

1. Jacob Kiraz (Bulldogs)

Highly under-rated player who really shone in the big win over the Dragons on Thursday night. Bagged two tries, made three line breaks and had over 220 run metres. A steady performer every week.

2. Valentine Holmes (Cowboys)

Played his best game of the year as the Cowboys outclassed the Tigers - scored two tries, kicked seven goals, made four line breaks, ran for over 200 metres and spent time in the sin bin in a crazy bunker decision!

3. Tommy Talau (Sea Eagles)

Took on the classy Storm outside backs and gave them a lesson in Manly’s upset win, scoring two powerhouse tries in addition to four tackle breaks and two line breaks.

4. Joey Manu (Roosters)

Probably the best centre in the game and had a day out in Canberra - two tries, two line breaks and more run metres than any Rooster. A polished performance.

5. Jarome Luai (Panthers)

No Nathan Cleary, no worries. The classy playmaker set up wave after wave of attack as the Panthers smashed the ladder-leading Sharks 42-0 on Saturday night to clinch a Blues State of Origin spot.
