1. Kalyn Ponga
Breaking into his first regular season Kalyn Ponga has built a formidable status in minimal time. Leading the Dally M before the counting went behind closed doors, the signs that Ponga has shown is nothing short of spectacular whether or not his side wins he has been fantastic to watch and so influential on the field. The Knights young gun leads multiple stats in the league, most kick return metres with 902 and 120 tackle breaks with injuries to other playmakers in their side Kalyn has excelled regardless. If Ponga continues this groundbreaking effort in every match to remain to dominate each contest, don’t be surprised if he wins the Dally M altogether at the end of the year.
There has been a plethora of talent that has shifted around prior to the 2018 season kicking off and much of it has been very successful for the clubs involved. No doubt many of these players will have an incredible bearing on the finals and who wins the premiership in late September.
