I think this suggestion follows in the same footsteps as Ryan Giggs as Sports Personality of the Year.
Pat Richards. Soooooo many points.
And would do points win ladies and gentlemen?

Bitofaboogie, is that you? Go on, tell us something about the special relationship.
There are a number of choices. Wingers should never be MOS though.
Rumour going around Headingley that Wire will have to play the second half with 12 men.
It seems that they forgot to bring the half time oranges, and Solomona ate Chris Bridge instead.
Don't know why he was hungry, as he looked as though he had eaten the whole youth team before the game started.

I think that's harsh tbh, Richards has had a huge impact on that Wigan team this year, and if the judges rule that he has had the biggest impact then he should get it, no matter what position he plays.
In that team there are a few who I wouldn't complain if they got it. Westwood, Richards, Roby, O'Loughlin have all had great seasons.

The award - regarded as the most prestigious individual prize in the domestic game – is the result of a poll of all first team players in the engage Super League competition (with the stipulation that no player may vote for a teammate).
The winner is rightly regarded as the best player of the 2010 engage Super League season.

I don't buy that. Richards has been very good, but then so have a lot of other players. He broke records because he kicks goals, which obviously attracts more headlines and makes him seem more important that plenty of other players.
There are a handful of players who could get it.
One other thing to consider is that in a team that plays good dominant expansive RL, wingers (and fb's) can finish off a lot of moves - see Riley at Warrington (not in the Dream Team despite 25 tries) - and get the headlines. If Riley was a kicker then I'm sure he would have had more headlines and been in ahead of Hall.
Like I say, Richards has been very good, and I would have no issue with him winning it, but statements like the above really annoy me.

Pat richards has scored lots of points yes but as a winger outside an excellent team and a goalkicker that is always going to happen, especially if you can jump high,
I agree with Browny about wingers not being Man of Steel
I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try
Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen
The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

I've seen this fella carry the team single handed at times this season so i agree with Rex, Danny Mcguire for me. It's easier to shine when you're with a team sweeping all before it but Mcguire has been sensational in a misfiring team and he's had a great work ethic. Most carries for our team at Hull on saturday and another two tries.
