David Havili, Jack Goodhue and Bryn Hall have been the standouts for me so far this season.
Havili is so reliable and dangerous at fullback. His positional play has been faultless this season and he almost always beats the first defender. I hope the leg injury he looked to pick up against the Highlanders isn't serious because he's a key player for the Crusaders this year. I'd also like to see him permanently used as Mo'unga's backup no.10 so Brett Cameron can be sent back to club Rugby.
They have similar skill sets - Havili offers all of Jordie's versatility, covering 10, 12, fullback, and wing, as well as a long range goal kicking option. The difference is that Havili is a better decision maker, and safer at his core roles.
If so, then Havili is bound to be disappointed.
