Rd 25 - Head to Head

While all eyes will be on the showdown between rookie of the year contenders Ash Taylor and Nathan Cleary in the halves, the battle of the number nines will be a ripper.

Statistically, there is little between Nathan Peats and Peter Wallace, two of the NRL’s unsung heroes.

Peats has slotted in seamlessly since his mid-season switch of clubs, while Wallace’s service, clever kicking game and ability to organise has been a valuable addition at dummy half since his switch from halfback.

Let’s see how their stats stand up.
