We have taken an in-depth look in to the top five Super League try scorers in 2019.

Tommy Makinson (St Helens)

The 28-year-old has established himself as one of the world’s best wingers in recent years and 2019 was another phenomenal season.

Makinson finished the campaign as Super League’s top try scorer with 23 in 29 matches.

The England international also racked up the most metres in the competition with 3,802. Makinson made more clean breaks than anyone else as well with 36 as he made the Dream Team for a third time in his career.

Ash Handley (Leeds Rhinos)

2019 was Handley’s best season to date as he nailed down a starting spot for hometown club Leeds.

The 23-year-old scored 22 tries in 28 appearances, putting him second behind Makinson in the try scoring charts.

Handley made 31 clean breaks and had an average gain of 8.16 metres per carry. He was named in the Super League Dream Team due to his stellar displays.

Niall Evalds (Salford Red Devils)

Some say Evalds was unlucky to miss out on a spot in the Great Britain squad for the end-of-season tour of the southern hemisphere.

The 26-year-old was dynamite for Salford in 2019, scoring 22 tries in 29 Super League games as he earned a call-up to the England Knights squad to face Jamaica at the end of the year.

Evalds was outstanding for the Red Devils, making 22 clean breaks and coming up with 13 assists.

Regan Grace (St Helens)

The 23-year-old was – arguably – the unluckiest player not to be involved with Great Britain’s touring side in the autumn.

Grace enjoyed a magnificent season with champions St Helens as he scored 20 tries in 20 league matches.

A Wales international, Grace made 32 clean breaks and 101 tackle busts in Super League last season.

Blake Austin (Warrington Wolves)

The Great Britain international was excellent in his debut season in Super League.

Austin is the only half-back to make the top five scorers, with 18 in 26 appearances for the Wolves.

The 28-year-old also made 12 assists, 29 clean breaks and 115 tackle busts as he was selected in the Super League Dream Team.
