Each week in the Sal’s NBL we’ll select the top 12 performances of the round and welcome those players onto the Sal's NBL Red Carpet.
From the 12 Red Carpet nominees we’ll then select the Team of the Week, before settling on the Player of the Week.
Who will be the best of the best in the opening round of the Sal's NBL 2019 season? All will be revealed soon enough. To get us started, in no particular order, here’s the;
