2 – Albert Kelly
One that may surprise some as Man of Steel contender Albert Kelly is ranked as runner-up.
Kelly, on form, is arguably the best stand-off in Super League, hence his high ranking.
However, having one good season at the Airlie Birds has not established him as a club legend just yet.
Regardless, his speed and passion has kept the Airlie Birds ticking, helping them to another strong season as well as a back-to-back Challenge Cup triumph.
Top stats, such as his 20+ tries from Hull was his main highlights.
Certainly getting one over his former club, Kelly is now living the high life at Hull, and is certainly wanting to avoid a ‘second year syndrome’ he suffered at Hull KR.
1 – Danny McGuire
Speaking of which, the Robins arguably possess the sport’s top half-back in veteran Danny McGuire.
McGuire endured a slightly more ‘quiet’ 2017 throughout but the way it ended for him was nothing short of sensational.
Guiding former club Leeds Rhinos to their eighth Super League title, and defying the critics, was simply bitter sweet.
But that’s not all, look at his exploits in the sport, such as being Super League’s all-time leading top try scorer.
True, he may not thrive as much for the Robins, given the fact he is with an entirely new squad, but all the more reason to leave him for last as his move has been heavily talked about by many in the rugby league world.
It may be doubtful he can help the Robins become competitive at top flight rugby again but nevertheless, he is the main stand-off to look out for as he looks to end his long and luxurious career on a high.
