Have your say: Who was the best Super League signing in 2018?

There were a number of big transfers in Super League last season and we want to know who you thought was the best.

Castleford Tigers make a couple of shred signings in 2018, starting with the arrival of Scotland international Joe Wardle from Newcastle Knights. Injuries haven’t been kind to the back-rower or centre, but he has fitted in well at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Liam Watts and Peter Mata’utia also made a huge impact on the Tigers when they joined midway through the season from Hull FC and Leigh Centurions respectively.

Catalans Dragons coach Steve McNamara made a number of top signings. The French side brought in Tonga international Samisoni Langi and Scotland winger Lewis Tierney from Leigh Centurions and Wigan Warriors respectively. The pair have been regulars this year.

And let’s not forget the mid-season arrivals of Josh Drinkwater and Kenny Edwards, who both played a huge role in helping the club become the first-ever non-British team to win the Challenge Cup.

Hull FC might not have had the best season, but winger Bureta Faraimo has been a good asset for them. The USA international has had to fill the boots of Mahe Fonua, but he has done decent for the Black and Whites.

Hull Kingston Rovers made one of the biggest signings in their history ahead of the 2018 season by bringing in Great Britain, England and Leeds Rhinos legend Danny McGuire. He guided them around the park excellently last season.

A lot of eyebrows were raised when Leeds first signed Richie Myler from Catalans but he had a solid first season at Emerald Headingley and managed to make his way back into the England squad.

Salford Red Devils brought Fiji international Ben Nakubuwai in for the 2018 and he didn’t disappoint in Super League, with fans loving his barnstorming carries. The arrivals of Jackson Hastings and Joey Lussick late on in the season were a masterstroke by coach Ian Watson.

Wakefield brought in a few new faces for 2018, with Pauli Pauli being the biggest, quite literally. He quickly became a fan favourite at Trinity due to his 130kg frame. He is a monster on the field.

Warrington Wolves made five signings ahead of last term, with Bryson Goodwin and Ben Murdoch-Masila being the pick of the bunch. They are starters for the Wolves and both lifted the squad when they came in.

Wigan Warriors only made one signing for 2018 and that was young Australian forward Gabe Hamlin. He played 11 games for the Warriors last term, and it was a good breakthrough year for him. A lot of Wigan fans have taken to Hamlin.
