    Braith Anasta won this award this year, probably unjustly given his form since.

    Who would you give it to?

    Brett Finch gets my nomination. He has been exposed without Fittler's guiding hand and his team is showing it. I'd almost take Monaghan over finch at the moment.

    Brett Finch? geez I have never rated him, not far ahead of Mona's in my opinion. He just had the luxury of Fittler playing alongside of him.

    Most overrated for me is Trent Barrett.

    I would have to agree with you, Finch is terrible in a class side.

    All I can say is, I hope Finch has framed his SOO jumper and has it under lock and key.

    He won't be getting another one in a hurry.

    finally someone else thinks this,he is on a par with monas , a very ordinary player behind a superior pack.

    I guess this depends on who is doing the rating in the first place.

    Off the top of my head I would agree with the Finch assessment (how many inside balls can one player possibly throw). Others include Hodges (one of the laziest footballers ever to lace on a boot, although there has been an improvement in his form this year), Tahu (hands like feet and dined out on Matt Gidleys flick pass for years), Fitzgibbon (solid toiler who is now running on old legs), Kimmorely (choker) and closer to home King (have been waiting for years for this supposed SOO ability to surface).

    Cant agree with Trent I have labbeled him as overrated in the past but he always leads his side well (except for the Parra game) and has the ability to win a game. I wish Manly had a 5/8 who could do that.

    chip , very good call on fitzgerbal,he is well past it,how he gets picked for origin then only plays 40 mins is beyond me.he adds nothing in attack at all and has just become an average toiler.

    Two players I personally rate very highly and are chief playmakers are Gower and Lockyer. However both are down on form and make my over-rated list as we head into the end of season. Lockyer will probably prove me very wrong on Sunday.

    suggest we shut this site down before Locky reads that!

    i can go past Kingey , at least those others while mayby not lived to expectattions have all performed at one time or the other at State of Origen level or above so you wont see me rating them anything but highly!

    I hate to say this, but Monnas is getting paid $240k. John Sutton is on $45k apparently.

    Need I say more?

    Oh yeah - Minichello is on $200k, and is a consistent Australian player - Monnas $240k.
