The amount of young talent in the NRL right now is ridiculous. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a boom of future superstars.
While compiling the below top 10 players under the age of 23, the list of names who missed the cut was incredible. Some of the names will be listed below and should cause plenty of discussion.
Please feel free to let us know your top 10 young players in the NRL.
Please note that
Cameron Munster, Josh Addo Carr, Valentine Holmes, Viliame Kikau, Jai Arrow and Ash Taylor are all 23.
Players who missed out: TPJ, Coen Hess,
Brodie Croft, Esan Marsters, Cam Murray
10 - Jesse Ramien 9 - Victor Radley 8 - Matt Dufty 7 - Tevita Pangai Junior 6 - Nick Cotric 5 - Tom Trbojevic 4 - Angus Crichton 3 - Nathan Cleary 2 - Latrell Mitchell 1 - Kayln Ponga Next
The Sharks centre is leaving a path of destruction in his first full season in the NRL. Possibly the toughest man to tackle one on one in his age group, Ramien is a tackle breaking machine. He still has a lot to learn in terms of positioning but he’s so big and so quick he’s able to adjust quickly and cover space. He will be a superstar at Newcastle.
