Fifita basically committed assault on Munster and it wasn't even a penalty

Maaaaaate.

Mate. I believe I said that for the first game. He wasn't ready back then. A lot has changed since then

Well done to all of our boys. They all played really, really well.

Smith with MOTM is fair enough - he was Smith-esque. Munster must have been close though... He was enormous. Slater also would have been a fair choice.

Next - Storm Premiership please!

No, not included. Updated rules/process this year.

---

The NRL has revised the voting process and structure of the Dally M Awards.

As part of an overall framework for consolidating player recognition and awards, the NRL has worked with media partners Daily Telegraph and Fox Sports to provide greater integrity and transparency to the voting process.

Some of these changes include an independent voting process, including a new panel which includes Peter Sterling, Darren Lockyer, Greg Alexander, Ben Ikin, Kevin Walters, Mark Gasnier, Andrew Johns, Ryan Girdler, Petero Civoniceva and Steve Menzies. All Dally M judges will be former players.

Additional changes include:

A specifically developed app will now be used to accumulate votes;
total matches for each judge will be capped, while consecutive voting on one team will be restricted;
judges will be provided access to live statistical data across all Premiership matches.
The Daily Telegraph will remain a key partner of the NRL in the delivery of the awards, which will be screened live on Fox Sports.

The public release of votes will run until the end of round 14, while the votes will be counted by accounting firm Ernst and Young ahead of the release at the awards ceremony in Grand Final Week.

“The Dally M represents the pinnacle achievement for players in a given season and we believe these changes make the award even more special for our players and our supporters,” NRL Head of Football Brian Canavan said.

“The voting system is clearer and more transparent, while the formalisation of a judging panel which includes some of the most prominent minds in the game will give the awards additional credibility.”

A comprehensive rules document for the awards, ensuring more stringent guidelines, has been created. Some of the key additions include:

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);
Team of the Year votes to be submitted in conjunction with Player of the Year votes; the leading positional players in the Top 10 of the Dally M Medal Count will automatically receive their respective positional award);
The rookie of the Year, Captain of the Year and Coach of the Year awards will be voted on a 3-2-1 basis by the judging panel at the completion of the Premiership rounds.
The rules were finalised by an independent Award and Recognition Committee, which will oversee the implementation of the new changes and will be chaired by Head of Football Brian Canavan.

The new voting process will exclude media partners as well as the NRL from knowledge of votes until a point determined by NRL for event delivery purposes.

They should just say no Daly M votes during Origin affected rounds. It's just silly giving 3 points to a player who has a cracker against a reserve grade team and doesn't say anything about their form over the overall competition.

How about Fifita's elbow to the back of Munster's head when he realised that the game was out of reach? Fat scumbag.

Fifita has always been a grub. Gotta laugh at his big sook after McGuire hurt his feelings after game 2
