#5 Tevita Tatola/Tom Burgess
Tatola: Breakout year for the Bunnies big man. Were big question marks over their pack before the season started, but he led from the front and silenced the doubters.Finished the year with 122m and 27 tackles per game, as well as 1067 post-contact metres for the year. Scored 3 tries and had 29 tackle breaks, and was unlucky to miss out ona spot in the NSW Origin squad.
Burgess: Really stood up and showed his experience this year when his side needed it. Finished the year 3rd in the competition for post-contact metres with 1464, and averaged 146m and 27 tackles per game. Arguably his most consistent year in the NRL.
