TYLER CHADBURN
Burleigh Bears

The classy fullback is a major strike weapon for the Bears with eight tries and 36 goals to his name already this year. Possessing sharp footwork and blinding speed, the Bilambil junior is a constant threat to defensive lines. 

JOSH MITCHELL
Central Qld Capras

A former Canberra junior, Mitchell is enjoying a bumper debut season for the Capras. Regarded as a future leader of the club, the talented halfback/hooker has re-signed with the Central Queenslanders for 2016.

TOM BUTTERFIELD
Easts Tigers

Tough and skilful; the Tigers star is now one of the premier hookers in the competition. He rarely turns in a poor performance, with his ultra-consistent form catapulting him into this year’s Queensland Residents team. 

MARMIN BARBA
Ipswich Jets

Could he be the fastest man in rugby league? Dubbed “Marvellous Marmin” by Ipswich Jets fans, the electric winger continues to pile on the points with 23 tries to his name from as many rounds. 

CHRIS GESCH
Mackay Cutters

A mainstay of the Cutters’ pack, the Barcaldine junior is a dream to coach. Every week he puts his body on the line with his textbook tackling and edge running a feature of many Mackay highlight reels. 
LINC PORT
Northern Pride

The former junior long jump and triple jump champion has soared to new heights this year. The Hopevale product’s breakthrough season, which includes 18 tries in 23 rounds, has caught the eye of representative selectors and NRL scouts.  

KRYS FREEMAN
Norths Devils

League commentators love this guy. And it’s not just because of his red hair. With an impressive work rate and crafty ball skills, the son of Kiwi Test great Gary Freeman is by far and away the Devils’ biggest asset. 

WARTOVA PUARA
PNG Hunters

He’s not the biggest or fastest player in the Hunters’ line-up, but he’s certainly one of the most valuable. His sharp work out of dummy half and ability to control the ruck is a major factor in PNG’s quest for a maiden Cup title. 

CHARLIE FAINGAA
Redcliffe Dolphins

The former St George/Illawarra forward is a crowd favourite with the Dolphin Oval faithful. Near impossible to stop when in full flight, the giant prop’s strong surges have been a hallmark of the Phins’ late season revival. 
PHIL DENNIS
Souths Logan Magpies

The inspirational Magpies leader this year notched up his 200th match in Queensland’s premier competition. While there are many fresher and faster legs around, few can match Dennis’ guile with the ball in hand.

JACOB SAMOA
Sunshine Coast Falcons

The bullocking back-rower can mix it with the competition’s best. Last year, he led a young Falcons team through a lean season and his efforts in the middle in 2015 have been instrumental in the club’s form reversal. 

DAN BEASLEY
Townsville Blackhawks

A young and passionate skipper, Beasley has led from the front this season. The Queensland Residents forward brings enthusiasm to everything he does and will be a key player in the Blackhawks’ maiden finals appearance.

SAM SAVILLE
Tweed Heads Seagulls

Tweed have boasted some explosive lock forwards in recent seasons and this man is right up there with the best of them. Highly regarded by coach Aaron Zimmerle, the former Australian Schoolboy is in career best form.

PAT TEMPLEMAN
Wynnum Manly Seagulls

The former Bulldog has been an instant revelation for the Seagulls. After starting the season at five-eighth, the gifted ball-runner is now calling the shots from fullback as the Baysiders launch another assault on the premiership.
