Kennedy was the form back rower of the NRL this year, regularly tearing apart defences with his rampaging runs wide of the ruck.

Links up well with Andrew Johns and his speed, strength and ability to run a good angle are a constant menace to the opposition.

Part of Australia's World Cup winning squad in 2000, but did not figure in the final against New Zealand.

Played rugby union earlier in his career captaining Australia U21s, but opted to concentrate on league when joining Canberra in 1996.
