A new face has emerged in our Rookie Rankings for the first time, with a Hawks flanker jumping into the top six to make his maiden appearance for the year.
His move up has seen a young Blues wingman fall out of the top seven, while a Saints forward has dropped to seventh spot.
A rising Sun continues to impress on his trajectory toward a podium spot, while the top two continue to trade blows as our incumbent No.1 holds his place in pole position for another week.
Criteria: For our Rookie Rankings, we are selecting players who have made their debut this season. Other players who may still be eligible for a Rising Star nomination but have already made their debut prior to the 2023 season will not be considered.
