The Wellington flanker was on fire when it came to attack today. Fifita totalled a whopping 10 carries and gained a total of 113 meters going forward. He was agile, powerful and surprisingly quick for a man of his stature, his try was the highlight of the day, as he stretched his long legs and showed impressive pace to get around to Argentinian defenders to get to the try line.
 
Kurtley Beale
 


 
Australia have been struggling as of late and they've been crying out for their senior players to step up and today Beale did just that. Beale orchestrated the Wallabies attack, distributing well and putting the wide men into space. It wasn't all distributing from Beale as he managed to grab himself a try creating something from nothing as he pounced on the loose ball and showed some impressive footwork to race to the line. To add to his performance Beale had a 100% tackle success rate.
 
Semesa Rokoduguni
 


 
The man is electric and added to his great performance last week with a man of the match performance today. Always dangerous and with Bath trailing by 4 with 3 to go, Rokoduguni out of nothing showed some dazzling feet to score a crucial try to put Bath ahead. He wasn't done yet, with Saracens pushing for a winner and looking dangerous in the final stages, Rokoduguni showed some great awareness to pounce on the pass and intercept, running 80 metres to the line to seal the win. Superb stuff from the England winger.
 
Alex Dunbar
 
In only the second week of PRO14 action, Alex Dunbar looks to be hitting top form already. He caused the Ospreys defence a host of problems throughout this afternoon's game with his combination of blistering pace and strong direct running. He beat 5 Ospreys defenders, gaining a total of 71 metres for his side. He also put in a tremendous defensive shift making countless crunching hits at pivotal moments of the game. His remarkable work ethic was rewarded with two excellent tries. He also deservedly picked up the man of the match award.
 
Alex Wootton
 

A dream performance for the winger today as he managed to get over the try-line 4 times. The 100kg speedster showed his fleet of foot as he managed to beat 5 defenders during the game and making 2 linebreaks with his direct running. He looked equally adept at stepping off of either foot today, leaving tacklers in his wake as he coasted to the whitewash time and time again. He deservedly received the MOTM award for his exploits on the field.
