Five Aussies to watch out for in Super League XXIX

Many Australians have achieved great success in the northern hemisphere and more Aussies will be looking to get their hands on the Super League trophy in 2024.

Here’s a look at five Australian stars who will have aspirations of grand final glory at Old Trafford this season:

Bevan French (Wigan Warriors)

Arguably the best back in the Super League, Bevan French has been a revelation since leaving Australian shores for Wigan back in 2019.

French’s best season so far came last term with victory over the Catalans Dragons in the grand final at Old Trafford, while also scooping the prestigious 2023 Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel award.

The 27-year-old utility back, along with fellow Australian Jai Field, will be determined to retain the Super League crown again in 2024, something the Warriors are 2.87 to achieve.

Moses Mbye (St Helens)

After being denied the Super League title last season, Moses Mbye and the rest of the St Helens squad will be striving to get back to the grand final and get their hands on the trophy in 2024.

Mbye joined the Merseyside outfit from St. George Illawarra Dragons in July this year and made his debut in round 20 of the Super League competition with a 22-18 win over rivals Leeds Rhinos.

Saints would end up losing 12-6 to the Catalans Dragons in the semi-finals, before the Perpignan outfit went on to lose the grand final 10-2 to Wigan.

With a full pre-season under his belt, Mbye will be hoping he can kick on in 2024, with St Helens at 3.75 to get their hands on the Super League trophy for what would be a 10th time in their illustrious history.

Kevin Naiqama (Huddersfield Giants)

One player who is no stranger to the demands of Super League is former St Helens centre Kevin Naiqama.

Heading back to the northern hemisphere for a second stint in Super League in 2023, Sydney-born Naiqama called time on his somewhat brief spell with the Sydney Roosters to join the Huddersfield Giants.

The West Yorkshire outfit disappointed last season after a strong campaign the previous year and will be hoping they can get back to their 2022 form to land a maiden Super League crown in 2024.

Having won the grand final three times with St Helens, 34-year-old Fiji international Naiqama has a wealth of title-winning experience to offer the Giants, who are 19.00 to lift the Super League trophy in 2024. 

Paul Vaughan (Warrington Wolves)

Last year Warrington Wolves were handed a boost in the forwards with the arrival of Paul Vaughan from the Canterbury Bulldogs.

Capped by Australia, while also playing international rugby for Italy, the 32-year-old will be hoping to have another big season for the Chester outfit.

Having previously had spells with the Raiders, Dragons and Bulldogs in the NRL, Vaughan again is another experienced player for Warrington, who are 8.00 to win the grand final this season.

Tom Amone (Leigh Leopards)

Our fifth and final selection is powerful Leigh Leopards prop Tom Amone, who will be looking to bring more silverware to the Greater Manchester outfit this season.

Having already lifted the Challenge Cup during his time in England, the former South Sydney Rabbitohs and Wests Tigers prop will be eager for more honours this season.

Amone and Leigh are 15.00 to cause an upset and claim a maiden Super League title this year.
