Who is a player from your club who you think will come to our attention this year? Does not need to be one of the 'marquee' players. Could be youngster coming through, a player stepping up from the lower leagues, a new import or a player regaining his mojo.

Hull FC - I'll pick 2

Jordan Johnstone. Signed i'm sure as a back up hooker, however with a likely season starting injury to danny houghton, he has an early chance to stake a claim for the first choice role. While he probably won't replace houghton long term it would be intriguing if he makes it almost impossible for radford to drop him

Manu M'au. Anyone who watched the eels last season will know about this guy. Lots of power but also a surprising amount of skill to go with it. Shortlisted for the nrl team of the year, in the superleague he could be a wow. Second row does not provide too many men of steel but he could be a contender.
The referee's indecision is final

For Leeds I’d say Cameron Smith and Stevie Ward.

Smith has all the attributes, it just hasn’t quite come together so far, if it does this year I think he could be great.

Ward could be a great backrower if he can just avoid injury which has plagued him so far.

Obviously there’s Konrad Hurrell as well who is always great to watch!

For Wakefield I would say the return of Bill Tupou and Tom Johnstone to full fitness. They, alongside Matty Ashurst, formed one of the most lethal attacking left edges of 2018 which saw all 3 called up to the Dream Team.

Can’t see Cameron Smith getting much game time, he isn’t good enough, he has had enough time to prove himself, mellor will be one to watch along with jack walker

Looking good for Leeds with these varied picks, my pair to watch are Handley (who I think will score a bundle of tries) and Newman who might just be the real deal.

I think Ligi Sao will be an absolute beast for you this season.

At Warrington i think Luis Johnson is finally going to find his rhythm and force his way in to the starting 17, he has the ability so i have my fingers crossed.
And i think Currie will re-find his form again for us and will be a massive attacking boost for us. He's played all season for us ish, and had an off season and now a pre-srason under his belt. I think he'll refind his confidence and make a big difference.

The Catalans Dragons newly signed five eighth James “Jimmy wins” Maloney is going to have a huge effect on the fortunes of his new team. Playing alongside Joshua Drinkwater, with Samuel Tomkins at full back and Michael McIlorum at hooker, he will be part of the best spine in Super League. Expect that by April James Maloney will be short priced favorite with the book makers for Man of Steel.
