It’s the return of Super League’s top 10 for this first time in 2017. I take a look at which players have made the most carries so far this season. Who will be number 1?
10. Zak Hardaker
New Tigers full back Hardaker is tenth on my list of carries. The former man of steel has had 86 carries so far this year. Impressive for a full back.
9. Junior Moors
With one more carry than Hardaker, his Castleford team mate Moors has had a great start the season. Usually coming off the bench, he has been explosive for the Tigers with 87 carries.
8. Sebastine Ikahihifo
Huddersfield’s Ikahihifo has been vital for the Giants so far this season. In addition to 158 tackles, he has also had 88 carries, the most at the Giants.
7. Mitch Brown
Former Cronulla Shark Brown also has 88 carries this season, identical to. Brown has switched between full back and wing for Leigh and has excelled for them.
6. Kallum Watkins
So far this season, Watkins has showed glimpses of form that made him ‘one of the best centres in the world’ back in 2015 and before. He had an ordinary 2016 but has been impressive so far and has 89 carries at the Rhinos.
