Lindsay Collins found his footing at the Sydney Roosters in 2020, bursting into form early in the season and never looking back.
His strong carries and dominant tackling was evident all season long, plus a fair highlight reel of flash plays joining his repertoire on top of that.
Collins played 19 games in 2020, his most games in a season so far in his young career with the Roosters.
In round 4, Collins gave a performance to remember against the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium that perfectly combined brutality and brilliance to earn his first Fan Voted Man Of The Match award.
At the conclusion of the season, Collins was called into the Queensland Maroons squad that would go on to defeat the New South Wales Blues 2-1 in the end of season State Of Origin series.
He played all three matches and made a huge impact from the interchange bench.
Collins returns for his fifth season with the Club in 2021.
