Behind every good team is an organiser who is piecing together the attack week in week out and freeing up flair players to shine.
So, here are the five best organisers in Super League:
5. Jake Clifford – Hull FC
Hull FC have signed Jake Clifford as the final piece of the jigsaw in their spine for 2023. He will free up halfback partner Jake Trueman and fullback Tex Hoy to shine. He did that time and again in the NRL for Hoy and others, and he will do that again in 2023.
4. Mitchell Pearce – Catalans Dragons
Mitchell Pearce was a top number seven in the NRL but we perhaps didn’t see that last season as he and Josh Drinkwater shared the responsibilities. Pearce scored plenty of tries but as Pearce moves to Warrington Wolves, Pearce should begin leading the Dragons attack like he did so often in the NRL.
3. Theo Fages – Huddersfield Giants
A key organiser for St Helens in their first two of their four Grand Final wins in a row. A great kicker and passer, with two creative sparks in Jake Connor and Tui Lolohea at the club next year, Fages’ ability to tie together the attack will be key.
2. Marc Sneyd – Salford Red Devils
All the focus last season at Salford was on Brodie Croft and Ryan Brierley as the two devastated teams. But they were given the platform by Marc Sneyd. He has an outstanding kicking game too.
1. Jonny Lomax – St Helens
The man behind St Helens’ four Grand Final wins a row. He has become even more important since Theo Fages’ left as he allows Lewis Dodd and Jack Welsby to shine. A great assister and kicker.
