The below list includes only players considered props first and foremost. A few locks could have made their way onto this list and vice versa, but we’ve gone with genuine 8’s and 10’s here.

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. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves

JWH could realistically be higher in this list, however was probably just a little off his absolutely best in 2020.

135 metres per game, 16 tackle breaks and 16 offloads are about average for a player of his talents, however JWH is the kind of player you want in the trenches with you in a big game.

He largely cut out the errors in 2020, where many, myself included, thought the faster game might see him become a big target. His numbers didn’t suffer at all.

  1. The Parramatta pair got a number one ranking for 2020, in another sites article mreel. So you’d be happy with that, being as biased as you are.
    However, each club has 4 plus props in their top squads & there are 16 clubs. So number 9 is pretty good.
    Paulo got a 6/ 10 rating in origin 3.
    Parramatta failed to make the Grand Final yet again.
    Number 9 may be a little light on? Still pretty close to the Mark.

  2. By the way mreel…
    2022, looks pretty bleak on the wings , for your eels. No Ferguson. No Sivo, if they don’t pay his contract upgrade.
    The ‘Riff’ as you like to say. To’o & Staines. Will be Vastly Superior our wide.
    Such is Life ! 😥
