Brendan Wood shines the spotlight on five key players to watch during the Grand Final on Sunday.
With so many superstar players on show in this game, it was tough to narrow it down to just five key players to watch on Grand Final day. Almost every player is going to be worth watching. Each player has played a part in getting their respective teams this far. However, the five players listed below are some of the best the game has to offer, and will have the biggest impact on who wins the 2019 NRL premiership on Sunday:
1. Josh Hodgson – Canberra Raiders
The hooker and co-captain for the Raiders has been in career-best form over the last few weeks. He is a big reason why the Green Machine are in the Grand Final. His kicking game is one of the best in the competition out of dummy half, and he always looks threatening with ball in hand. He’s capable of turning the game with a one-on-one strip at any moment, and leads the competition with an astounding 14 steals this year.
