I reckon it will go something like:

Mal Meninga Medal: Austin
Players Player: Hodgson
Coaches Award: Wighton / Croker / Soliola

So at least 3 of them will get recognised.

So what's the difference between the players player award and the Meninga Medal?

There is no separate players player award. Last year the awards given were:

Meninga Medal
Coach's Award
Rookie of the Year
Fred Daly Clubman of the Year
NYC Player of the Year
NYC Coach's Award

That was what I thought. So why is everyone nominating a Meninga Medal and player's player? They're one in the same.

This is the Greenhouse. Logic and sense don't enter into the equation.

Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Surely it has to be Hodgson, Austin or Croker. Our 2 best performers and the NRL's top point scorer.
Id say its a 2 horse race between the 1st 2 though.

Meninga Medal: Wighton
Coach's Award: Hodgson
Rookie of the Year: Bateman
Fred Daly Clubman of the Year: Soliola
NYC Player of the Year: Lincoln Lewis
NYC Coach's Award: Zac Woolford?

I reckon Wighton will poll very consistently over the year and just pip Hodgo and Austin.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

As previously reported on The GH, Jeff Lynch is leaving the Canberra Raiders. He's the 12th to depart in 2015. That's a lot of players!
