6 Tala Gray (NSW Country Eagles)
Tala Gray is one of those young veterans who seem to have been around for ages yet whom still surprises at his age (still only 24). Plenty of experience with the Tahs and Brumbies as well as in France, Gray returned to Tah-land this year but was almost site unseen. That all changed come this competition as he tore it up for NSW Country in a series of performances that saw some folk suggest that Scotty Fardy’s Wallaby jersey on the UK tour would not look out of place on Gray’s hulking figure. With Kane Douglas gone there’s every chance, with a bit of shuffling, that Gray could be rewarded with a well-deserved Super Rugby start in 2015.
