This reeks of the same bullshit that happened when New Zealand won the world cup in 2008 when DARREN Lockyer won man of the match.
I mean you have to do something pretty damn special to win that award in a world cup, and be on the loosing side.
One thing that comes to mind, is winning the game.
Another thing that comes to mind, you must have played EVERY game in the series no matter what competition, WC, Origin, 4 Nations etc.
Clearly there were better players than him on another team, because their team did not win.
Funny that he happens to be one of the selectors for Billys award.
Just adds another string to the bow of the NRL being rigged.
The fact the warriors have actually made it too, 2 grand finals within the space of 10 years is actually a pretty amazing achievement in itself.
It sucks to see our team get so heavily scrutinised when watching games, but lets be honest. They never want to see a New Zealand team in the GF
On paper the team we had in the GF in 2011, compared to the some of the rosters we have had since, makes you wonder.
