Here is Zero Tackle’s NRL Rookie Team of the Year for the 2018 season.

Players who played more than ten first grade games prior to this season were not eligible for this list.

2. Wing: Jamayne Isaako

At this point in the season, Isaako is currently favoured to walk away with the official Rookie of the Year moniker at the end of the year. Having developed himself into one of the better wingers this season, Isaako has scored 10 tries, kicked 86 goals (with an impressive percentile of 84.3%) and kicked a lone field goal to sit atop of the point scorers list with 213.

Having bulked up in the off-season, Isaako was ready to cement a position in the Broncos top 17. His added size has proven to be a great asset to both himself and Brisbane with the powerful winger recording 50 tackle busts this season along with an average of 95 run metres per game.
