2018 player of the year awards

Postby Mattpoet » Mon Oct 01, 2018 5:32 pm

Put your predictions in here.

Player of the year - Munster
Best back (tipping it to be renamed for Billy Slater) - Addo-Carr
Best forward - Asofa-Solomona (would have gone Finucane if he'd played more games)
Rookie - Drinkwater narrowly over Grant
Most Improved - Welch
Best clubman (tipping it to get renamed for Hoffy) - Slater and Hoffman to be joint winners
Cronk medal (best Q Cup player) - Drinkwater or Pat Kaufusi

I thought Hoffy already had clubman award...second time he left for the Warriors

Agree with you on all of them except the Qcup award ...Drinkwater will proberly win it but Justin olam had a really good year too


The 20s awards will be handed out as well even though they already had theirs last week

I like these except would have Finucane winning the forward gong

Does Brandon Smith still qualify for our rookie of the year?

Also i’d have Kaufusi as forward of the year

Not sure what criteria the club uses. If it is the same as Dally M voting, Brandon Smith would be eligible given that he only played three NRL games last year. If he qualifies under club eligibility rules, he would claim this award easily.

My version...

Player of the year - Cameron Munster
Best back - Billy Slater
Best forward - Dale Finucane (even with limited games)
Rookie - Brandon Smith
Most Improved - Legitimately struggled to find someone that improved on 2017 form... I think I'd go Jahrome Hughes.
Best clubman - Hoffman makes sense. Cam Smith should be considered for his rep retirement and efforts to get us to the big dance.
Q Cup POTY - Harry Grant

Probably. He played consistent first grade for the first time however I thought he had more impact last year. This year he had some really good games, a lot of average ones and that sweet one handed offload all but disappeared.
