After starting the year coming from the interchange bench in 2018, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves finished the season in devastating form and was one of the form forwards of the competition.
His season took a turn for the better in Round 10 when he put on a monster performance over the New Zealand Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium.
After sustaining broken ribs in a tough contest against against the Rabbitohs in Round 22, Hargreaves returned to the side for the home stretch and didn't miss a beat.
He laid the platform in the front row during the finals series, which played a huge role in winning the Sydney Roosters their 14th Premiership.
Hargreaves is currently in the New Zealand Kiwis squad, where he was selected as a reward for his outstanding form this season.
