Thoughts on who wins what at the meninga medal?
For mine
Best player - austin
Rookie - probably bateman i suppose due to only him and barnett?
20's - TPJ

What other awards?

Austin probably wins it because he was flashy... i think our POTY got it spot on though, should go to Hodgson. Spliting hairs though. Its not as if Austin wouldnt be deserving.

Rookie id give it to Barnett, havent seen enough 20's this year to know on that one.
The List - K.Love, Keno, Zippy's tennis angels, LA Lakers, Noah, Boozer, Lucy's horse tips, Colts, Lucy, Kevin Proctor, Dr Zaius, TR....

Rookie of the Year depends on performances in first grade. I'd still go with Barnett.

Nailed it, I'd be happy with and see the points for either of them winning it.

I'll be surprised if the club didn't recognise Hodgson as our POTY.

It is how the players vote in each match. I'd be surprised if they see it too differently to the fans votes. It's either Hodgson or Austin.

Didn't we have dual winners couple years ago?

I think that the players will notice how important Hodgson has been more than the media

I didnt really think so until a few weeks ago, there has been a lot of casual remarks from the players in the last month or so really pumping his tyres up.

As said, you cant really go wrong as long as it's either Austin or Hodgson, both deserving of the award. I shade Hodgson's way.
Really excited to think how good he could be. I remember saying when we signed him that we probably cant expect him to be a top 5 NRL hooker and we didnt really need that, we just needed someone who FG standard... i sold him short, i really dont see any reason to think in 12 months time why he couldnt be one of the best hookers in the game, esepcially with Farah, Smith, Ballin and Luke winding down.
