Every NRL club has a player that they rely on to deliver them results. Whether it’s leading from the front, demonstrating brilliance or providing consistency every team needs a key player. These are the players that will need to perform for each club, from the New Zealand Warriors to the Wests Tigers.
1. New Zealand Warriors – Shaun Johnson
Shaun Johnson is a player that has incredible talent but lacks consistency. For many years the Warriors have relied on him to lead them into the finals, but have been disappointed come the end of the season.
With the addition of Blake Green, Johnson will finally have a reliable halves partner that can help him run the team. It is now up to the Warriors halfback to show his brilliance all year in order to take his side deep into the finals.
