It will fly under the radar for a lot of fans but the Dally M awards will be presented this Wednesday night.

Earlier in the month I named the team (13) I would name at the team of the season. It was the team I judged the best across the NRL season prior to the finals.

The below are the players I expect to win based on Dally M votes.

The Dally M team of the year is judged on points. That isn’t always a fair reflection but it is the process.

Although a player can poll well in horrible games while a far more consistent player doesn’t poll in a game where there are four stand outs, this is based purely on how I think Wednesday’s awards will go.



Josh Addo-Carr

Addo-Carr made my team of the season and for mine has been the stand out winger across the competition.

The top try scorer in David Fusitu’a may push him close but I believe RTS will take too many points off him to really push the Storm and Blues superstar.

Addo-Carr had a series of match-winning efforts. His making breaks and scoring highlight reel tries stay in your memory and they stand out. That equals points.

Blake Ferguson will likely push the Storm speedster and may pip him late but Addo-Carr has a point awarding style of play and was incredible all season.
