In the first of our six annual posts, we take a look at the best young players in the NRL.
To do this, we use data collected by StatsCan and compiled by the AFL’s database, using the same methods we use for the All Stars game.
These stats include age, the club, the game and the result.
You can also see who has won a game in the top three spots.
The All Stars have a new game format that will see teams playing a series of five games, against each other, in three rounds.
For this first edition, we’ll focus on the first round of the new season.
Here are the top players in each position from each of the last three seasons.
We’ve also added a new section to the top-five list, where you can find our own personal rankings of the best in each of these positions.
Now, onto the new year.
