    If Isaac Luke has been better over the past 12 months than Josh Hodgson I'm not fucking here/
  3. Julian BJ Taylor

    Josh Jackson best second rower!

  4. Julian BJ Taylor

    And Taumololo in the second row awards.
  5. cloughie09 TJ Clough

    Hodgson has been far better Ennis, Luke and to be honest Smith imo. Jackson wasn't even the best forward at the Bulldogs this year. And swap Taumalolo for Bateman, Whitehead or Ferres as not sure how you can get voted in for two positions
  6. Julian BJ Taylor

    Ennis was one of the best players in the NRL this year tbf.
  7. Magic AJ Parker

    Along with Sam Thaiday.
  8. cloughie09 TJ Clough

    Only saw a few of his games but he had a good year from what I saw, so only judging on what I saw as I saw more canberra, Melbourne and south's games

    And how does Blake Ferguson get a gig? What did he play, about 60% of the season?
  10. cloughie09 TJ Clough

    His team mates made him look 100% better than he was, scored a few tries late on in the season which probably helped his cause

    All this proves is how much of a joke the Golden Boot is.
  12. Lukic L Popovic

    How the fucks Thurston voted so highly in both 5/8th and halfback.

    :laughing: Josh Jackson makes me laugh as well
  13. Tartmaster AJ James

    Such joke awards.
  14. AVA T Delonge

    How shit are the wingers this year. Deadset.
  15. Hunter AD Hunt

    Josh fucking Jackson. Wow.
  16. Benny BS Read

    Josh Jackson still not the worst pick, how bad is the wing group
  17. BigGuns DA Astele

    Someone like Rona should have got a run surely.
  18. Magic AJ Parker

    There are no real stand out wingers these days full stop so it's a pretty hard position to award IMO.

    It's always easy to pick the inoffensive option but I've honestly got no issues with Radradra being picked, he's got his flaws but so does almost every other winger.

    All things weighed up I think you can make a pretty strong case for Radradra. His yardage was excellent all season and his ability to create something out of nothing was unmatched by any other winger in 2015 IMO.

    Yeah, I agree, but the daylight between Radradra and second place is ridiculous. Not saying there are many options to fill in that gap, just that the depth for out and out wingers is shit :p
  20. Julian BJ Taylor

    Yeah and realistically that daylight isn't actually there considering Semi can't actually tackle.
