    This is so salty even Maccas couldn't serve it. Delicious. Got any more up and coming guns you want to share with us? Hell, if we steal enough of your players we might even be good some day.

    I've got a feeling Ponga will get pipped at the post this year for player of the year. Next year, if we can keep our team healthy and competitive, may be a different story.

    Out of interest, whens the last time the Dally M was awarded to a player whose team missed the finals?

    Also any award where Kevin Walters gives points is pretty shitty.

    Going to be tough for the sharks to keep their good up and coming players, they have peaked too early and won their premiership for two lifetimes now. No point players sticking around.

    Ponga will go close but just miss out I think. All depends on how Newcastle go for the remainder now with Pearce back.

    Mitchell Pearce led the votes until he was injured. Pearce will again take points away from Ponga.

    Brandon only played 3 games last year. Therefore he does qualify

    Has a winger ever got it? Fergo must be at least in the top 10, he has 4 MOTM by my count.

    On Radley, he played 3 games last year so I think he is still eligible?

    Not normally but because he’s Victor Ridley exceptions will be made.

    His bigger barrier is that he’s actually not playing at the moment because he’s injured lol

    But like it’s Ponga so he’ll probably still be able to get points despite not actually playing games.

    So much salt in this thread.

    As a sharks fan I’m sure you’re aware of what it’s like to be on the bottom.

    Sorry too soon, Kearney obviously thinks so though, he's still picking him

    Didnt he play the year before also? Therefore doesnt qualify?

    This is the same kid who was Cams understudy at hooker and made the Kiwi squad 2 years ago no? Genuine question my memory is shit.

    He made his debut last year and only played 3 games. The year before he was at the Cowboys playing 20’s. He was part of the NZ team for the Anzac test last year.

    Maybe your thinking of Brodie Croft. He made his debut the year before

    Thanks. Nah definitely Smith. Same surname as Cam. Wow. Thought the kid had played more first grade.

    Definitely a contender but sticking with Ramien unless he gets more time on the field. Good player though. Smart move to have him off the bench this year.

    I like the look of Ramien. Very strong & talented for his age.

    How bad are the cowgirls kicking themselves for litting little Ponga go now eh bro?

    Cowboys hardly "let" Ponga go.
