Cronulla captain Paul Gallen has closed the gap at the top of the Dally M leaderboard to two votes after receiving two votes in the Sharks' four-point loss to Gold Coast on Saturday night.

Gallen ran for 200m and laid 38 tackles in a dominant performance, although Storm captain Cameron Smith still has the chance to extend the lead by the end of round eight, as Melbourne host the Warriors on ANZAC Day.
