Fullback: James Tedesco (Wests Tigers)

James Tedesco's season has been a very impressive one, as the fullback finally earnt his maiden Blues jersey in Game 3 of this year's State of Origin series.

The 23-year-old made a lightning start to the season, scoring two doubles and a hat-trick inside the opening five rounds.

After a lull over the Origin period, he's found his try scoring touch once again, scoring in the past three games to move his season tally to 14, just three tries short of Suliasi Vunivalu, who leads the league with 17.

The fullback is in the top 20 for try assists and line breaks, and will be a key member of Wests' push for a finals berth over the next four rounds.

Honourable mentions: Ben Barba (Sharks), Darius Boyd (Broncos), Jack Wighton (Raiders), Cameron Munster (Storm)
