Top 5 NRL 5/8’s in 2019

Power Rankings

5- James Maloney

Whilst the Catalans bound five-eighth didn’t have the best season as a whole, during the middle of the year James Maloney was crucial to the Panthers’ winning streak and reinvigorated New South Wales in State of Origin.

4- Cody Walker

Whilst he did have a period out of form, we can not overlook Cody Walker’s dominant first half of the 2019 NRL season, up until the Origin period he was the game’s inform player.

3- Luke Keary

Keary misses out on the top two spots due to a significant time spent recovering from a concussion during the middle part of the season, other than that he was as influential as ever in his side’s run to back to back premierships.

2- Jack Wighton

Wighton reinvented himself in 2019 as a five-eighth and was crucial to the Raiders’ crusade to the NRL Grand Final where he won the Clive Churchill Medal.

1- Cameron Munster

Cameron Munster was the lead controller for the Melbourne Storm in 2019 as they claimed the minor premiership quite easily.
