5. JACK SNART
A new signing for the 2017 season, Jack showed immediately in pre-season games what he's capable of. Comfortable at either centre back or full back, he is a defender blessed with both positional intelligence and strength.
Having shown his nerve and quality under pressure in the opening day draw versus B52 Carnegies, Jack genuinely looks like a huge prospect for Shane not just for this season, but for many seasons to come. Fitness and availability permitting, Jack will play a key role in 2017 and is an early contender for the coveted Rising Star award.
