As this seemingly never-ending off-season drags on, fans of the game are continuing to talk all things rugby league. From the draw, to away trip plans, to who is best positioned for a run in 2021.

We’ve decided over to take a look at the Top 10 players in each position and today we start with the prolific role of the centre.

For the purpose of this list, only full-time club centres will be considered.

Top TEN best fullbacks in the NRL
Top TEN best wingers in the NRL
Top TEN best centres in the NRL
Top TEN best five-eighths in the NRL
Top TEN best second-rowers in the NRL


10. Brian Kelly

The Titans centre had a breakout season in 2020 and places here above the likes of Jesse Ramien and Jarrod Crocker. Truthfully his stats weren't incredible in terms of tries (six in 16 games) but he was super dangerous with almost every touch of the ball.

127 metres per game, seven line breaks and 48 tackle breaks are just a preview of things to come. I am confident in saying Kelly will be an absolute monster in 2021. Those games he played in 2020 from the bench and at wing will be consigned to history. He is their strike centre moving forward.



  1. Hopefully for the Panthers , they will retain him. They certainly deserve to.
    Penrith should get Leniu & Staines to have a good chat with him. To convince him as to why it’s better to stay at the Panthers.

  2. I think Crichton will re-sign. There is a Mt Druitt connection between Crichton Leniu, Liau, and To’o. Leniu and To’o has re-signed, Liau will too.
