How does that compare to last year?

Last Years results

Dalton won last year and it was less of a competition. 5 times he was voted the best player in a match

18 players got points last year (by finishing in the top 3), this year 23 players got points


Loose Forwards were popular again

Not a surprise given the strength of the loosies. 8 times a loose forward was voted player of the match

Sotutu and Papali’i finish first and second. Robinson and Ioane both feature in the top half despite missing so many games

Who was unlucky?

Eklund & Mark Telea both had strong seasons but often finished just outside the top 3

If there was a vote across the whole season I suspect Rieko Ioane would finish higher than 5th
