    State of Origin is included I thought?

    Just had a look and it looks like they are not counted but it has been amended so a players best 21 rounds will be counted giving the rep players a better chance.

    "Players are eligible to receive points for the Dally M Player of the Year in NRL Telstra Premiership matches only (each player's best 21 point-receiving matches will be taken into account, allowing for the stand down rounds during the Origin period)"

    Don't be ridiculous.
    His total metres gained are less than Latimore, but more than Dufty.

    I don't think this is really true, when you look at who has won it in the past. Looking at the list of winners, you're a much better chance of taking the award if you play in a winning team, rather than if you're the only good player in a losing team.

    The last player to win it from a team outside the top 8 was Jarryd Hayne in 2014 (joint winner), and before him you've got Buderus in 2004, and Trent Barrett in 2000.

    In 7 of the last 11 years the winner has played for a team that reached the grand final.

    Quoted, because this deserves more recognition than it’s got..

    Bradley Parker melts down the metal from old Dally M medals, and makes new studs for his left boot. But only for his left boot, which is also made from the hide of a Chimera killed by a virgin from Surry Hills...

    His right boot was made from the recycled engine block and interior of a 1993, wide body Camry (Bowls Spec Auto, in Champagne of course!). It reminds him of his mortal roots, and keeps him grounded when the blood thirst becomes almost unbearable :joy::joy:

    Cameron Mick Ennis.

    I feel sorry for him.

    Looks like a race between Smith and Teddy.

    Would love Smith to get another one, but Tedesco has been near unstoppable second half of the season.

    Tedesco is the shortest odds I've seen to win Dally M for some time. $1.72

    I think him being rested a couple times this year from origin might cost him though?

    On the actual topic

    Its hard to split Brooks, Marshall and Matterson from my team

    Probably Matterson for consistency

    Bateman or Papalii for mine. This year has been a strong team effort though.

    Nope. Have a look at Crazyperpman's post upthread, Dally M's are calculated based on each player's best 21 point-receiving matches will be taken into account. If Tedesco plays in Round 25 v Souths, that will be his 21st NRL game this year so the stand downs won't effect his score.

    Pretty sure they barred lesbians winning the Dally M after Slater won it that time.

    JFH is the only one worth feeding at the Panthers... The rest I wouldn't even piss on at the moment

    The Social Media administrator for the Dragons.

    24 grueling rounds of turd-polishing each match. Each time pressing the "post" button with that sickness in the pit of the stomach, knowing of the nuclear barrage that will soon follow..

    Who-ever you are, keep strong.. only one round to go!
