Coach of the Year: Ricky Stuart (Canberra Raiders)
In one of the closes four-horse races this award has ever seen, Ricky Stuart just gets our vote as the coach of the season.
The Raiders were expected to feature in the finals by experts this season but only just, however the Raiders are arguably the most in-form team in the competition as we enter Round 23.
Despite Cronulla winning 15 in a row, their undefeated streak was broken by the Raiders, who currently have a six-game win streak of their own, as they gear up to host the Storm in a blockbuster clash on Monday night.
Canberra have the most potent attack in the league and have scored 26 points or more in all six wins, and at this stage of the competition would have to be one of if not the danger team come the finals.
Honourable mentions: Shane Flanagan (Sharks), Craig Bellamy (Storm), Neil Henry (Titans)
