Lock: Jason Taumalolo (North Queensland Cowboys)
After last season's Team of the Year nod for the same award, Jason Taumalolo is the only player we've predicted to go back-to-back on awards night.
The Cowboys big man has made a massive influence on their season so far, with the 23-year-old playing in all but two games.
Taumalolo is in the top five of the league for hit ups and running metres, and will be a big factor in how far North Queensland go in September.
Honourable mentions: Paul Gallen (Sharks), Trent Merrin (Panthers), Sam Burguess (Rabbitohs), Dale Finucane (Storm)
