The Super League Dream Team will be announced on Monday October 1, in the coming days it will be your chance to vote for your very OWN Dream Team which will be announced on Friday 28 September, we will give you a shortlist of four players and you can vote in the poll!
With our backline sorted, it’s now time to pick our number 6. Known for their ability to control the game here are four Stand-Offs that have done just that in 2018 for the respective club sides;
Jonny Lomax (St Helens)
Lomax played as a junior for Orrell St James before making his debut in 2009. He has featured on the wing and at full-back for Saints but this year he has made the Stand-Off position his own.
Lomax steered the side from number 6 this year, registering 16 tries and 15 assists in 2018.
His link-up play with Danny Richardson and Ben Barba has been superb and formed a key part of the spine that led the Red Vee to their first League Leaders Shield since 2014.
Jonny Lomax in Numbers:
Attacking Kicks: 28
Jacob Miller (Wakefield Trinity)
Jacob Miller has impressed massively since signing for Wakefield Trinity from Hull FC in 2015 and has led the league in assists in 2018. With 6 tries, he’s chipped in a fair few points from his side.
He has strolled his side around the park with 103 attacking kicks and has often been the fulcrum of the Trinity team.

Attacking Kicks: 103
George Williams (Wigan Warriors)
Crucial to the Cherry & Whites since becoming a first team regular in 2014, Williams has dazzled Super League defences with his fast running style and ability to see a gap.
He has weighed in with 6 tries in 2018, setting up 21 for his team mates, and has made over 100 attacking kicks, leading to his side registering 6 wins from 6 in the Super 8s and putting Wigan in a superb position to reclaim the Super League crown.
George Williams in Numbers:
Attacking Kicks: 100
Jake Connor (Hull FC)
After his superb England debut against New Zealand in June, Jake Connor’s stock has risen immeasurably.
His impact on the Hull FC team was most noticed when he was out of the side through injury, and he has been a starlet for the Black & Whites since he signed from Huddersfield Giants.

Attacking Kicks: 50
