GPS First XV: 10 standout performers from opening four rounds of 2024 season

We’re a month in to the 2024 GPS first XV season and this year’s competition looks to be one of the closest in recent memory.  In the opening four rounds, nine of the 12 matches played so far have been decided by seven points or less and things look like they’ll continue that way in the weeks and months ahead.  With no rugby over the June long weekend, we thought we’d take a look at some of the standout individual performers in the opening four rounds.  While it would be easy to list more than 10 players, here are a few that have caught our eye so far.  Issac Fonua - Kings No.8 As the only returning player from last year’s undefeated premiership winning side, Issac Fonua has been outstanding in a young and fairly inexperienced Kings side. Still only in year 11 but in his second season in the first XV, Fonua is already one of the most dominant physical threats in the competition but has also shown poise and leadership this season.  Angus Grover - Rive
