Aaron Brown is a fine young player, but has he done enough to be nominated for overall Player of the Year? Not for me, not at all.

No Ridyard? No Knowles? No Davies?

They shouldn't announce these until the season's over.

No featherstone players seems a bit rough.

Aaron brown was dewsburys best player when we played them at Easter and is a fine young lad but no way has he overall played better than the likes of QLT,Ridyard,Davies etc...

Credit where it's due here, I'd give Paul Cooke and Tony Miller the awards. They have worked hard to put an unfashionable club in a good position, Miller especially, as the other nominees were expected to do well anyway. Cooke is still a class act, but not sure that he will have the same influence when he's coach as well. For those going on about Davies, don't forget he's had a lengthy spell out this time and hasn't had chance to perform week in week out to earn a nomination. If he goes the whole season next time and gets his workhorse pal Applegarth beside him, then everybody look out, they, in my opinion, are the best 2nd row pair in the division by a street, regardless of whether Bretherton stays, (brilliant try today, as good as any Ryan Hall effort!) Manning,Scott or whoever we bring in.

Davies is our second highest appearance-maker this season!!! For what it's worth, he's a top player but had a pretty indifferent spell mid season that means he probably isn't a realistic call for Championship player of the year.

Another example of the RFL not giving a hoot about life outside Super League.

They probably drew the names out of a hat.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

On a slightly different angle, I thought Paul Cooke's analysis and insight into the game on the TV yesterday was first class. His reading of the game plans etc and methodical mindset showed how he is able to dictate play when he is on the field. Will be interesting to see how he does as a full time coach, as he obviously knows the game inside out.

I'm a Dewsbury fan and don't agree with browny been on the list don't get me wrong he's a fine young player and probably our best player but he has not done enough to been on the list plus he was injured for a large part of the season I'd say someone Paul Cooke desveses it can't beilvle no fev players are on it

 I have had quick look at match stats out of 34 games excluding pre-season friendlies and Boxing Day against the Rams which he played in  he has missed only 5 out of 34 games  and usually plays full 80 mins.
