6 Best Super League Signings of 2018 So Far

3. Josh Charnley- Warrington Wolves

Yet another Wolves signing, ex-Wigan star Charnley surprised most people when he was announced as a Warrington player just a few weeks ago.

Many wondered how he would cope switching codes and coming back to rugby league- the impressive winger has answered that question already.

Charnley has bagged three tries and two assists in Super League, as well as touching down a further four times during last weekend’s Challenge Cup win over Bradford.

Keep up this scoring record and Josh could yet prove to be Steve Price’s shrewdest piece of business since taking over.

2.Krisnan Inu- Widnes Vikings 

It is never nice to see a star player get sidelined so soon into their journey at a new club, especially when they were setting the league alight prior to injury.

That is exactly what had happened to Inu, who suffered a cruel leg break against Warrington after starting the season so well for Widnes.

He had already scored six tries in nine games for Denis Betts’ side and provided a creative spark on the right edge not seen at the Select Security Stadium for many a season.

The Vikings will be counting the days until the 31-year old is back fit; he could really be the difference between Super League and Championship status next season.

1. Richie Myler- Leeds Rhinos

Myler could be forgiven for being a little daunted by his move to Leeds in the off-season- after all, he was tasked with succeeding two Rhinos greats in Danny McGuire and Rob Burrow.

Some fans were sceptical about the arrival of a man who didn’t really grab the headlines at the Dragons. However, Myler provides far more than that.

Since his arrival, the 27-year old has laid on 14 tries for his team-mates, a league high alongside St Helens’ Ben Barba, and has produced consistently assured performances far surpassing what many fans expected of him.

Myler seems to have found his perfect role at the Rhinos- he may not be an identical replica of the likes of McGuire, Burrow and the legendary Kevin Sinfield, but he can certainly bring a new dimension to the Rhinos in the seasons ahead.
