10. Nelson Asofa-Solomona - Storm
Standing two metres tall and tipping the scales at over 115kgs, Nelson Asofa-Solomona, 20, is an absolute giant of a man, with plenty of talent to match. Having played 18 games for the Storm, he has shown he can match it with the more developed forwards. He has represented the Junior Kiwis, although I believe he has bigger honours in his future. I’d be very surprised if the Storm allow him to leave.
11. Abraham Papalii - Roosters
22 year-old Abraham Papalii made his debut for the Roosters earlier this season and although he has returned to NSW cup following the return of Cordner and co. he has a huge NRL future ahead. Another physical monster, Papalii looks like a wrecking ball. Those who saw young Papalii in NSW cup for the Warriors will remember his hattrick against Manly. This kid can play.
12. Shaun Lane - Warriors
21 year-old giant Shaun Lane looked as though he had nailed down a regular spot in a brilliant Dogs pack. Unfortunately his form let him down but he now has a big opportunity at the Warriors after signing recently. At almost two metres tall and weighing well over 110kgs, Lane could cause some serious damage to forward packs across the league. He has a long way to go, but he has all the talent.
13. Sauaso Sue - Tigers
Tiger's big man Sauaso Sue just turned 24 yet already has 66 NRL games under his belt, as well as wining eight caps for Samoa. Sue is probably not the undiscovered diamond that some on this list could prove, however he has been consistent in a Tigers pack that is unfortunately on the wrong end of many contests. Reports have linked him away from the club, however given his efforts for the Tigers, I can’t see them letting him leave without a fight.
