The player market heading into the 2018 season was crazy. I can’t remember a season where so much big name talent changed clubs and made such a big impact.
Although some big name recruits failed to live up to their reputation, there have been some incredible signings.
Below we look at the top 10 recruits from 2017 into the 2018 season. The below is based on form, results and impact on the club they joined.
Let us know if (and why) we have it wrong in the comments below.
10. Corey Thompson (Tigers)
With all due respect to the Tigers’ winger/fullback this is probably a shock. His signing went largely unnoticed in the mayhem that was the Tigers’ recruitment merry-go-round, but he’s been arguably the club’s best all season. Able to score a try from anywhere, Thompson has been equally as effective on the wing or in the number one jersey. Huge fan.
