We take a look in to Super League’s assist kings for the 2019 season.

Jackson Hastings (Salford Red Devils)

The 23-year-old was a joy to watch in Super League last term as he deservedly picked up the Steve Prescott Man of Steel award.

Hastings made more assists than anyone, with 36 in 29 appearances. Hastings also scored eight tries and made the most carries in Super League, with 563 to his name.

Lachlan Coote (St Helens)

Coote is the only player on this list who is not a half-back. The Great Britain and Scotland international came up with 22 assists for St Helens last season.

The 29-year-old also scored 14 tries for Saints, as well as kicking 95 goals as Justin Holbrook’s side won the Super League Grand Final.

Theo Fages (St Helens)

The Frenchman was the preferred option to start in the halves alongside Jonny Lomax at St Helens last season, and he didn’t disappoint coach Justin Holbrook.

Fages came up with 22 assists in as many matches in Super League last season. He also scored six tries.

Marc Sneyd (Hull FC)

Sneyd’s stats in 2019 are impressive. He had 21 assists to his name, while he kicked 104 goals and seven drop goals.

The 29-year-old was brilliant with the boot, having only missed 23 goals all season while he made 278 general kicks in play.

Jonny Lomax (St Helens)

Lomax is such an underrated player in the game. The 29-year-old enjoyed a stellar 2019, as he provided 21 assists and scored 16 tries for hometown club Saints.

The Great Britain and England international was a constant threat last season a he made 17 clean breaks and bust 90 tackles.

George Williams (Wigan Warriors)

The Great Britain playmaker will ply his trade in the NRL with Canberra Raiders next year after a remarkable season with boyhood club Wigan.

Williams scored 14 tries and provided 21 assists in 29 games for the Warriors in 2019. He also made 18 clean breaks and bust a staggering 122 tackles.
