Luke Keary was arguably the buy of the season last year for the Sydney Roosters, and in 2018 he continued his ways as one of the form halves of the competition.
He missed the first match of the season due to a head knock, but didn't miss a beat in his return in Round 2 with a try and two try assists against the Bulldogs.
His form was rewarded with a call up to the New South Wales Blues squad, where he gained valuable experience being a part of a representative squad.
He was missed later in the year after sustaining an MCL injury, but was able to return for the home stretch of the season.
Keary was sensational in the Finals as he took on a large bulk of work when Cooper Cronk sustained a broken shoulder.
After an outstanding performance in the NRL Grand Final, he was awarded the Clive Churchill Medal.
He was called up to the Kangaroos Squad in the post season and made his debut starting at five-eighth against the New Zealand Kiwis.
