Dylan Napa made his presence felt when he was on the field in 2018.
His impressive form was rewarded with selection in the Queensland Maroons squad mid-season.
Though the back end of his year was hampered by injury and suspension, Napa took to the field in the NRL Grand Final.
He'll look for a full and consistent season when he returns to pre-season later in the year.
