Tweed Coast halfback Tahne Robinson
Tweed Coast halfback Tahne Robinson Brad Greenshields

League of their own in NRRRL

1: Andrew Battese,


Dominating at hooker this season and has teams on the back foot whenever he runs out of dummy half. Battese has been widely regarded as the best player in the competition since 2008 and this has been one of his best years to date.

2: Caleb Ziebell, Cudgen

He could have jagged top spot for his efforts at Cudgen and a strong representative campaign which saw him earn a NSW Country jersey.

Ziebell has missed the last two games before the midseason break with a dislocated finger and will lift his side when he returns from injury.

3: Tahne Robinson,

Tweed Coast

Sets up most of the tries for Tweed Coast and often scores the rest off the back of his skill and blistering speed from halfback.

Robinson joined the Raiders from Casino this season and has helped steer them to the top of the ladder after the first half of the competition.

4: Roy Bell,


Looks to be getting better with age and is a big reason for the Mullumbimby revival under coach Dallas Waters.

Bell has brought the experience and touch of class needed for the Giants to close out the tight games.

5: Sam Grant, Cudgen

Cudgen looked like they would be short in the halves at the start of season but they quickly found their feet with the acquisition of Grant.

He has had a great season so far and dominated with his kicking game which saw him earn a representative jersey with NSW Country.

6: Michael Thomas,


A key signing for Mullumbimby who constantly threatens out wide and often finds his way to the tryline.

Thomas brought his multiple premiership-winning experience with him from Ballina and it could prove to be his best season in NRRRL if the Giants go all the way.

7: Dylan Montgomery,


No front-rower has been able to dictate and have opposition teams on the back foot like Montgomery has had since he returned from Sydney in 2013.

He looks like his best games are still to come this season and he will play a major part if the Seagulls go back-to-back

8: Trevor Bolt, Casino

Capable of winning a game of his own bat and the Cougars have seen what he can bring to the table in recent weeks.

A fresh start at a new club looks to be working wonders and there is not much that the mercurial halfback can't do.

9: Kyle Kennedy,

Marist Brothers

Marist Brothers needed someone to aim up when they lost lock Jack Durheim for the season and Kennedy has stepped in to fill the void.

Kennedy is as tough as they come and never stops charging at the opposition forward packs.

10: Joe Besgrove,


Great addition at Murwillumbah this season and stands out in a competition blessed with an abundance of talented hookers.

Not the typical build for a dummy half but makes great strides around the field and is hard to bring down.
