Fullback

Kalyn Ponga – Newcastle Knights

The Knights’ biggest off-season recruit is paying dividends as Kalyn Ponga is the form fullback of the competition right now.

Playing every single game of the 2018 season, Ponga has singled handily won games for Newcastle with 10 try assists and scoring five himself.

With nine line breaks and 116 tackle bursts, the most for the competition, as well as a whopping 2247 running metres thus far, Ponga is no doubly a star and could win his first Fullback of the Year award at just the age of 20.
