#NRC2015: the standout names

Sydney Stars lock Matt Philip is a strong defender and ball-carrier, is already in the Waratahs set-up and looks destined for Super Rugby sooner rather than later. Already plays as if he’s been at this level for so many more years than just one. Image: ARU/Flitty Images

ESPNscrum: It’s been a big week of National Rugby Championship content for me, and I was really pleased when ESPNscrum asked me, as a very keen and heavily involved NRC follower, to put something together on the competition’s standout players.

It was a difficult task, with so many quality players getting around in the NRC this year, but I have earmarked a few standout names – the stars, the names to keep an eye on, and some genuinely unpolished gems. Some you’ll know and won’t be surprised to read. Some will be a nice reminder, and some are names you should genuinely remember for the future..
