    NSWRL players of the year

    Sydney Shield - Jake Pickering (Peninsula)
    Ron Massey - Brendan Waters (Wests)

    Tend to agree with Jake Pickering. Jake Horton would have been close to winning it also.

    Brendan Waters would not have been my pick. Adrian Davis has been the best half/player in the competition in my opinion.

    Thoughts?

    The other 2 were:

    19 Luke Chalker
    20 Joseph Ratu

    but they named 19 so maybe they did not play.

    Cabramatta had a really tough year finishing 11th in RMC but can take some satisfaction in seeing 6 players that have appeared for Cabra this season play in Newtown's win against NZ Warriors in the NSW Cup semi on sunday, in particular, Corin Smith, Kenny Niko and Harrison Muller who played 9 to 12 games for Cabra.

    My understanding is that the 15 players that played for Kingsgrove this season that also appeared in NYC this season were as follows:

    Ben Marshke, Ben Thomas, Brad Mullins, Brendan Frei, Jake Steadman, Jarrett Boland, Joseph Ratu, Luke Chalker, Nick Cornish, Paul Momirovski, Shaq Mitchell, Sitili Topouniua, Suka Raki, Tristan Alvarado, Zac Cardassiliaris.

    and another 2 that played NYC last year - Harry Barsdell and Isaac Chrichton - also appeared for Colts this year.

    5 tries to Ben Baker - an amazing performance in a big game. Meanwhile, Ben Pickeing, SS player of the year, could not provide his usual penetration, meaning that a very solid 1st half effort that delivered a 12-4 lead to Peninsula was overcome by Mounties, who ran out 32-16 winners.

    Seen Wests Twitter and Facebook accounts carrying on about the referee costing them the game at St Mary's. Sadly it's not the first time those official accounts have carried on like that, quite disgraceful coming from such a historic club.

    That being said I saw a long post on Facebook from one of the players talking about his frustration and disappointment at the officials gifting Mary's two trys that should have been disallowed, as well as pulling back one of their own to award them a penalty at the ruck instead of playing advantage, despite the in goal ref giving the all clear for put down.

    Was anyone at the game? Penalty count was even or close to it. Wonder if it was as bad as being made out?

    Wests always complain on their twitter account. They whinge on anything that goes against them, but never blame themselves.

    Highly unprofessional and extremely disappointing. It's really ordinary in the first instance but when they not only tweet the referee assocation, but then name the referee in their social media postings... I hope the NSWRL come down on them somehow. So so poor.

    I was at the game to watch a mate in shield, Wests really where dudded, last StMarys try was a bounce ball i was right on it and my son and myself couldnt believe it was awarded, and their second last try the wests catcher was taken out by what looked like an offside player, offside or not would have been a penalty every day of the week in the NRL. Wests dropped way too much ball, but definitely got some really bad calls go against them. Not sure about the unawarded wests trys.

    Even if they did get bad calls against them, the way their social media accounts act is an absolute disgrace.
