Nice list.

Olam is my best centre in the NRL in 2020.

Would never of said that in 2019.

Just my 2 cents.

edit: massive wraps on Staggs but playing 14 games just isnt enough.

As you have seen I am tallying observations from the finals.

Definitely Papenhuyzen and Leuia.are big standouts so far for me.

Two incredible players

Luciano leilua is pants. Not in top 10 backrowers

SJ has to be in top 5 half backs.

Another player much like papenhyzen is aj Brimson from titans. Always pushing up behind ruck and always backing up. Quick and good footwork. Always looking to get involved. Very good player

Along with cleary and jack wighton they are the stand outs so far! Papenhuyzen is a machine he is so dangerous and great to watch

Ado-Carr is the best winger; an absolute excitement machine and a robust defender. Olam is also a better centre than Staggs imo.

Olam is a rock definitely but he's no kotoni Staggs. Agree totally with ado carr... might have to make a few changes

Not sure what the criteria is here but if its on form this season, Brimson only played 9 matches all year.

If we are talking talent alone he is up there.

Looks like many agree on the above group of top players as do I. I would personally have Roger in top 5 full backs over Ponga though who has been bog avg this year imo.

Umm?
Shaun Johnson anyone?

The season he’s had carrying the Sharks surely gets him in the Top 10.
