Check out our NRL season review for the 2023 season below (don't worry – we will be back again in 2024 with our expert NRL tips):
Teams – Biggest Improvers
The Warriors went from second last to within a game of the Grand Final – a feat for which Andrew Webster was deservedly named coach of the year. Along the way they played brilliant attacking football before packed houses in Auckland – a fitting reward for all their sacrifices during two years of COVID.
Teams – Biggest Letdowns
Everyone thought the Cowboys could challenge for the top four after a fine season last year – instead they didn’t even make the top eight. Some of their boom young players appeared to suffer from the dreaded second year syndrome. Honourable mention for Parramatta – Grand Finalists to missing the eight as well.
Players – Biggest Improvers
Reece Walsh went from a kid with talent to a genuine superstar following his move from the Warriors to the Broncos. He set the NRL alight with his attacking skills and helped the Broncos to the Grand Final. Rookie of the year should have gone to Jahream Bula from the Tigers – who starred in an awful team.
Players – Biggest Letdowns
Nicho Hynes went from Dally M player of the year to not even getting nominated for Cronulla’s player of the year. He wasn't that bad – but he was great last year. Latrell Mitchell had some good games for Souths but also had some poor ones and they cost his team dearly.
