    Don't know how JT won the Boot this year, had a lot of time out due to injury and spent a lot of time playing on one leg after the injury. If he was the best league player in the world in 2011 I'll eat my hat.

    Greg Inglis had a pedestrian year through being lazy and being injured; how he made the Team of the year I can't understand. I watched Souths play Brisbane when they were still fighting for a semi's birth and he handled the ball four times in 80 minutes of football and made 3 tackles.

    There's nothing to be said about Greg Inglis. And once you've said that, there's nothing more to say.

        So that means Jamie played better during the regular season than all the centres put together that played IRL. Geeez he's bloody good!!

          Inglis and Thaiday are the ones that stand out for mine as not deserving to be in the team.

          Glenn Stewart is unlucky not to get in. I reckon they didn't put him in because of the brawl.

          It's a joke award and means as little as the Dally M IMO.

          The only award I'm interested in is the one responsible for handing out the premiership trophy.

            Are you serious? The Daly M medal means a fair bit to the people who win it and is a true best and fairest award. The Daly M rookie of the year is the one that means bugger all! lol

            Rookie of the year this year would have meant a great deal actually

            Simms and others were in the class,2010 meant nothing because there were no good rookies

            Dally M is a joke.

            RLPA awards should get more press (voted on by there peers)
