    I thought Daniel Saifiti had another good game.
    We were well outclassed by Penrith, but Daniel still seemed one of the best forwards on the field, if not the best.
    Donovan put in a good effort.
    The Faitotoa brothers also went well.
    Our pack next year could have the Saifiti brothers in the front row and the Faitotoa brothers in the second row.

    2015 Holden Cup Team of the Year

    Mon 14 Sep, 2015, 10:08am
    NRL, NRL.com

    Emerging NRL stars Tom Trbojevic (Sea Eagles), Ashley Taylor (Broncos), Te Maire Martin (Wests Tigers), Gideon Mosby (North Queensland Cowboys) and Latrell Mitchell (Sydney Roosters) are among the players honoured in the 2015 Holden Cup Team of the Year.

    NRL Head of Football, Mr Todd Greenberg, joined Sandy Alchi, Zone Manager NSW and ACT for GM Holden and members of the 2015 Holden Cup Team of the Year at Rugby League Central's Heroes and Legends Museum.

    This year's team joins an honour roll that includes some of the NRL's most talented stars, including Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Valentine Holmes, Daly-Cherry Evans, Ben Barba, Kieran Foran, Marika Koroibete, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Ben Matulino, Dane Gagai, Jesse Bromwich, Jason Taumololo, Shaun Fensom, Tariq Sims, Gareth Widdop, Ben Hunt, Trent Merrin, David Klemmer, Dylan Napa, James Segeyaro, Konrad Hurrell, Luke Brooks and Bryce Cartwright.

    "The Holden Cup Team of the Year is a virtual preview of the stars of the future in the NRL," Mr Greenberg said.

    "When you look through the list of players who have made this team in the past it reads like a 'who's who' of the game.

    "A number of those players named today have already broken into the NRL - a remarkable achievement when they are still eligible for Holden Cup.

    "Importantly, all these players are undertaking training and following a career.

    "So these young players not only have enormous potential on the field, but are developing exciting careers off the field as well."

    All players were presented with a $1000 education grant at today's announcement.

    Te Maire Martin and Newcastle's Danny Levi also joined a select group to be named in the Team of the Year in consecutive years.

    Geraldine Davys, Holden's Executive Director of Marketing and Customer Experience, congratulated all the players who had made the Holden Cup Team of the Year.

    "To be named as part of this team is a fantastic achievement and one they should all be very proud of," Ms Davys said.

    "At Holden, we remain excited about our support of rugby league at every level, from Australia's most elite athletes to supporting rugby league at a grassroots level.

    "We are committed to helping rugby league develop in local communities and we believe the Holden Cup has a fantastic approach to preparing young players for life in, and beyond, sport."

    Some questionable inclusions in that team to say the least. Some definite stars in there also.

    Levi honoured by achievement

    Tue 15th September, 10:31AM

    Promising young hooker Danny Levi was named in the NYC Holden Cup 2015 Team of the Year on Monday morning for the second year running.

    It caps off an exciting year for the Junior Kiwi in which he made his NRL debut and signed a two-year contract extension at the Newcastle Knights.

    “It was a good achievement for me to make the team for a second year,” Levi told Knights TV.

    “I was really happy when I found out, and the family were definitely proud.”

    The 19-year-old drove down to Sydney on Monday morning to receive the award, and rubbed shoulders with other young stars at the event such as Tom Trbojevic and Jayden Nikorima.

    “There was a bit of an early drive down, but I got to meet all of the other players which was good,” Levi explained.

    Levi played 13 games in the NYC competition this year, shifting to the NRL side for seven matches and spending the rest of his time in NSW Cup.

    The dummy-half spent his time in Cup developing his skills against bigger and stronger opponents with an eye to eventually cement a spot in first grade.

    “Playing in Cup definitely helped, it was a good stepping stone to progress up into first grade,” Levi said.

    So far Levi hasn’t looked out of place in reserve grade, with the side progressing to a preliminary final against the Mounties this weekend after beating the Penrith Panthers 44-12 on Sunday.

    “I didn’t expect to win like that, but I guess it just shows that if we put in a good 80 minute performance that’s the type of win we can come away with,” Levi concluded.
