3 Points - Jeremy Smith: Absolute massive game. So good to see him in our colours. (10/10)
2 Points - Paul Gallen: Massive game by Captain Courageous yet again. Has to have sealed Brut Big Hit of the Year for that bell ringer on Weyman. (9/10)
1 Point - Nathan Gardner: Stroke of genius to set up that try on half time. Haven't seen a stroke of genius like that from our players like that in years. (8/10)

Ramzyv1's ratings for Cronulla vs St George Illawarra (NRL Premiership, Round 2, 2011)

3 Points - Ben Pomeroy: Minute for minute I can see arguments for Gal or other forwards to get all the points but Poms not only played the game of his life but I believe he set the tone for the whole game with his 2 big hits at the start, as we looked shaky before that. Two tries as well. Wow, what a game. (10/10)
2 Points - Paul Gallen: What a bloody hero! (10/10)
1 Point - Jeremy Smith: He was a real leader just like Gal, I am so happy we signed him. (9/10)

- Nathan Gardner: Was excellent considering the wet weather and certainly outplayed Darius Boyd. I hope we keep this guy forever. (8/10)
- Matthew Wright: Might be unfair to be negative about anyone after a game like that but Wright seemed to be the weak link for me. He did fine but I would like to see Best move to the wing and Collis come back in or bring up Gordon. I rate Wright and want him to succeed but he, again, just seems like the weak link in the backline. Played fine. (6/10)
- Colin Best: Showed glimpses of the his Canberra form from a few years ago with a couple of his runs and a big hit on Soward. Hope he continues to improve as he could be a major asset. (7/10)
- John Williams: Showed alot of class, I really like this player. That kick off that went out on the full though at the start of the game was terrible. Most weeks they would have punished us for that and I think if they had then it would have been a different game and maybe a cricket score to them. You just can't make those mistakes. (7/10)
- Albert Kelly: Good game and will only get better. Really impressed by his tackling and he showed class with that Tupou try. (8/10)
- Wade Graham: Some of his 5th tackle options were **** and some of his kicks were outstanding. Consistentcy and confidence will come. Good game. (7/10)
- Kade Snowden: Played out of his skin, any other week he could have gotten the 3 points but the other forwards and Poms were also excellent. What a great player. (9/10)
- John Morris: Really stepped up and took control and was no small part of this win. I think the halves benefit from his experience as well as when they are a bit off, he steps in. (8/10)
- Luke Douglas: Was very good and should be proud of his effort. I tend not to notice him as much as Snowden and the backrowers but he still gets through the workload. (8/10)
- Anthony Tupou: One of his best games in Sharks colours. Did not look out of place next to Smith and Gallen. (9/10)
- Josh Cordoba: Probably the best game I have seen him play, really matched the other forwards for intensity. (7/10)
- Broderick Wright: Played very solidly, and a good line break through toughness and determination. (7/10)
- Stuart Flanagan: Morris played so well that Flanagan didn't really get a chance. He played fine but I definitely want Aiton slotting in next week. (5/10)
- Johnny Mannah: We didn't lose anything up front when he came on. Great effort. (8/10)

3 Points - Paul Gallen: Awesome game, this is how he should always play. Best local derby player ever! (9/10)
2 Points - Anthony Tupou: Without his great try all the monster tackling in the world wouldn't have helped - but he did plenty of that too. (9/10)
1 Point - Jeremy Smith: Provided the difference in his experience and ferocity. (9/10)

- Nathan Gardner: So good. (9/10)
- Matthew Wright: Did a great job getting us out of our half. (8/10)
- Ben Pomeroy: Big defence, and two tries from bombs. Should keep his spot. (8/10)
- Colin Best: Welcome home - great defensive and attacking game. Always looked committed and dangerous (8/10)
- John Williams: Good work with the bombs. Good runs from dummy half. Excellent defense on Morris. One mistake with the first kick off but more than made up for it (8/10)
- Albert Kelly: Excellent inside ball for Tupou's try just before half time. Showed a heap of energy in everything from kick-chases to dummy-half runs, and defended very well. (9/10)
- Wade Graham: Made some ordinary final-play decisions in the first half, but the rest of his game was excellent. (8/10)
- Kade Snowden: So hard not to give him Man of the Match (9/10)
- John Morris: Excellent defensive effort, and some good kicking. (8/10)
- Luke Douglas: See Snowden. (9/10)

- Broderick Wright: Excellent contribution in the second half, kept the team effort going. (8/10)
- Johnny Mannah: Best game in first grade (8/10)

3 Points - Paul Gallen: Absolutely inspirational game. Massive meters and not a single one was cheap. The backbone of our team. (10/10)
2 Points - Kade Snowden: What a god damn animal. There are plenty of dragons forwards that would have had nightmares last night. Epic game. (10/10)
1 Point - Jeremy Smith: I was tossing up whether to give the 1 point to Smith or Tupou. Ended up going with Smith because he gave it his all against his old club. Didn't hold back. (9/10)

- Nathan Gardner: Very safe in horrible conditions. (9/10)
- Matthew Wright: Good solid kick returns, still has a bit to learn about playing on the wing. (7/10)
- Ben Pomeroy: Bloody monster. We really need a strike player in the backs and he looks the most likely. (8/10)
- Colin Best: Had a really good game and made up for last week. Big, strong and looks fast as well. (8/10)
- John Williams: Really safe and gave it 100%. Genuinely surprised how solid he has been after last year. A change is as good as a holiday. (8/10)
- Albert Kelly: Loved that try assist and his kicking game was great. Took the line on too. (8/10)
- Wade Graham: Still a bit shaky but great kicking game and some strong defense. (7/10)
- John Morris: Best game in Sharks colours. Loved it. Loved the passion. He's a Sharks player alright. (9/10)
- Luke Douglas: Great work horse effort as usual. The rotation changes seemed to help the team. Was very fresh when he came back on and created danger. (9/10)
- Anthony Tupou: His running game was dangerous. His combo with Kelly is going to be one to watch. Cut people in half in defense as well. Looked hurt near the end but got back to his feet every time. (9/10)
- Josh Cordoba: Really strong. His best game at the Sharks. (8/10)
- Broderick Wright: Didn't see anything particularly special but did his job. (7/10)
- Stuart Flanagan: Didn't see anything particularly special but did his job. (7/10)
- Johnny Mannah: Didn't see anything particularly special but did his job. (7/10)
