Every standout player for each Super League club in 2020 so far

We take a look at each Super League club and which players have been performing well since the restart.

St Helens – Alex Walmsley

The prop forward has been in great form since the restart, and has become a regular try scorer for the Saints, with only team-mate Regan Grace scoring more than him at the club.

He is Super League’s seventh top try scorer with nine tries, and is the leading top metre maker in the Super League with 2,242.

Wigan – Bevan French

Super League’s leading try scorer with 13, French has been one of the best performers at the Warriors.

The former NRL outside-back has been linked with a return back to Parramatta Eels, with the Wigan full-back finding his best form since making the switch to the Super League.

Warrington – Toby King

King is arguably having his best season yet with Warrington since making the switch to the centres.

He leads the way with the most offloads in the Super League, and has scored two tries so far this campaign, and team-mate — has said that King deserves an England call-up for next year’s Rugby League World Cup.

Catalans – Israel Folau

The Catalans centre has scored nine tries so far in the Super League, and has been one of the standout players within the Dragons camp.

Steve McNamara’s side currently sit fourth in the table, but need to play three more fixtures if they are to qualify for the play-offs.

Leeds – Luke Gale

The half-back has had an influential year under Richard Agar, with his perfect performance against Wigan helping guide the Rhinos to the Challenge Cup final at Wembley, before landing the winning drop-goal to beat Salford 17-16 and lift the trophy.

In the Super League, Gale has scored six tries and assisted 11 more.

Hull FC – Joe Cator

In a rollercoaster season for Hull FC, 22-year-old Cator has had a standout season at the KCOM Stadium side.

The former Hull KR and Leigh forward joined Hull in 2020, and looks to have a bright future in the game.

Huddersfield – Aidan Sezer

Sezer arrived at the Giants following seven years in the NRL, including a Grand Final appearance for the Canberra Raiders in 2019.

The 29-year-old has impressed in his debut year in the Super League, and has been one of the standout players in the competition, with seven tries and 18 assists.

We’re excited to see what the future holds for Sezer and Huddersfield.

Salford – Dan Sarginson

The former London, Wigan and Gold Coast Titans utility back has had an impressive season under Ian Watson.

Sarginson played in a big part in Salford’s journey to the Challenge Cup final, and was unlucky to miss out due to coronavirus.

He has impressed at full-back, and with Niall Evalds joining Castleford in 2021, could Sarginson be handed the number one spot permanently?

Castleford – Paul McShane

McShane has made the second most amount of tackles in 2020 (604), only behind Michael Lawrence (636).

The Tigers have recorded just six wins this season, but the hooker continues to show why he is one of the best in the game.

Wakefield – Kelepi Tanginoa

Tanginoa has made 18 appearances in the Super League so far this season, scoring four tries and receiving the man of the match award on three occasions.

The powerful forward has been a standout performer in Wakefield’s pack, and is an exciting player to watch.

Hull KR – Ben Crooks

For a lot of the season, Crooks had led as Super League’s top try scorer, despite injuries.

The 27-year-old has scored 10 tries so far this season, and is proving to be one of Tony Smith’s best players under a difficult season.
