Season review - Vunivalu, Addo-Carr, Papenhuyzen

Wingers Josh Addo-Carr and Suliasi Vunivalu and rookie fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen were excitement machines in 2019. Foxx this year clocked the fastest speed ever recorded in rugby league and Suli and Paps were hot on his heels, recording the fourth and fifth top speeds across the comp respectively.

Suliasi Vunivalu

Our Flying Fijian started the year in red-hot form, making two line breaks and six tackle breaks to score a hat-trick against the Raiders in round two.

He was unable to reach the same dizzying heights again this season but was always comfortable under the high ball and powerful as ever, averaging 119 metres a game.

Showed his class during rep round, scoring a double for Fiji in the Ox & Palm Pacific Test.

Scored 11 tries from 24 appearances.

Josh Addo-Carr

Foxx was in scintillating form for much of the season, averaging 126 metres and producing 16 line breaks, 16 tries and three try assists across 23 games.

Looked dangerous whenever he had the ball in hand and was on fire at the business end of the year, scoring five tries in our last six games.

His outstanding efforts at club level earned him a second call up for the Blues and he started in all three Origin games.

Ryan Papenhuyzen

A sensational breakout year for Paps - it's hard to fathom that he was third-string fullback in February.

Paps took his opportunity and ran with it - literally - when he made his debut in round four, cementing his place in first-grade with his incredible pace and fearless attack on the line.

Sprinted 85m to score the opening try during our last-gasp 24-22 win over the Tigers in round 10.

Averaged 126 metres across 22 games, producing 17 line breaks, nine tries and five try assists.

One of six rising stars nominated for The Players' Champion Rookie of the Year award - we can't wait to see what he can do with a year of experience under his belt.
