Their "memories" are actually written down and handed to an NRL official after each match. One doesn't know what the other has done as they sign a confidentiality agreement. The NRL official then simply does the maths. I also think that NSW had a number of players who probably took points off each other with that format.

Daly was pretty confident all week and took control of things right from the first session.
I knew he'd do well. In fact I think (and yes I'm biassed } he would have gone very close to MoM.
Hunt went much better as he wasn't the leader. He's an excellent number 2 for attacking decisions but isn't quite there for outright leadership.

I've seen and read all that, and still completely disagree.
Slater says he takes the criticism with a pinch of salt, now I take the award with a pinch of salt.

I watch the game from afar...but IMO giving the award to slater didn't help the game's image one bit

So are you questioning the credentials of Meninga, Daley and Lockyer or are you questioning the system?
May I remind you of Paul Gallen being awarded the medal in 2014?

Didn't Slater only play two games? One of them his team lost? Just confirming...

They should have given him a different award, but not that.

I think the perceived problem probably lies in the fact that so many New South Welshman had good games in all three matches and probably took points away from each other, whereas Billy had two good games so he top scored.
That being said, I still think DCE was better than him last night.

I am a NSW fan and have no problem with Billy getting the award, he had the biggest impact on the series and regardless of only playing 2 games was easily the best player of the series.
