I'd agree with Morley....usual high standards, does all the little things right, has wiped most of the poor tackle technique out of his game. Richards has impressed me this year too, but I'd vote against Tomkins just for the things he does to get cheap penalties...he's turning into an annoying little git :-D

Richards.

I have no idea how Morley even gets a nomination.

He has been a good player in his time, but he hasn't done anything special this year.

The MOS award is fast becoming the vehicle for a sentimental send off for RL AOP's.

I'm surprised Cunningham isn't in there as well.

Morley by a country mile. Something badly wrong if he doesn't get it after his efforts this year.

Take your rose tinted specs off B)

Morley has been outstanding this season, has even played 80 mins on a couple of occasions.

One thing to remember Hannibal, its the players decision :O not ours.

That will rule Tomkins out then ;)

Dont like giving it to Aussies (as good as this one is)

Giving it someone who blatantly cheats to get cheap pens every other tackle sends the wrong signal IMHO

Morley it is

Tomkins and Richards have already won the Goldthorpe Medal and Richards was the Writers' Player of the Year, so they have both been recognised for their efforts. Either would be worthy winners - indeed, you could make a case for any of the 3 of them. If Richards does not win this, then it is hard to see how a winger could ever win it.

I think missing 3 shots at goal under pressure last weekend means I can't support Richards, no matter how well he's played all season.

Morley for me

That seems something of an over reaction - did you watch Morley's anonymous performance on Friday, after being rested the week before as well (how Steely is that - "take a week off, love"?)? Richards made what could well have been the match winning break, missed one kickable penalty and then kicked one, and one touch line conversion. His last minute penalty was hardly Don Fox territory.

Each to his own of course, but I wonder whether you could honestly compare and contrast Morley and Richards' play off contributions and give the award to Morley. Now, if actually you just dislike all things Wigan or think that an outside back cannot win this, then they are perfectly valid reasons not to back Richards.

EW, i have no issue with Wigan RLFC....i have issues with a few fans. (certainly not you :) )

Richards has been brillant this year, fantastic scoring record and plenty of goals

Morley has been great for Wires, pushed the team forward.

either deserve the MOS.

Bad week at the office for Morley last week, but remember the award is for the efforts all year.

Bad week goal kicking for richards

Goal kicking will not win MOS, but richards all round game has been superb.

How will the players vote???

Remember wonderful tries or being battered in the tackle

Delivering that killer pass or hurting when trying to tackle morley

Warrington players can't vote for Morley, so their pick is tomkins or richards

Wigan players can only vote for Morley.... interesting when you think about the shortlist.

In truth, i am gob smacked Ben Westwood hasn't been shortlisted.

E/W i have championed the Pies this season go back through the posts at the start of the season, infact i said you would win the opening 10 games i was that confident of your start / team

Recently i have got ###### off with some of your fans hence the banter, but i truth you have a fair reaction from me......

regards

Paul

Just found out on the Warrington Guardian Website that all the players in Super League vote on the 3 players shortlisted

5pts

3pts

1pt

I am sure i have previously read "you can't vote for players from your own club"

Discuss....

How can a winger be "man of steel".

Adrian Morley should win this one.

Martin Offiah managed it in 1988. :P

If a half back is not ****ing of his opponants, he's not doing his job properly.

Maybe in the Andy Gregory era.

Smart ***** usually get sorted quickly in the modern era.

In his first season of RL..... do you not think that helped ??

plus a number of FULL length tries, not walk in from 2 or 3 yards... just a thought. ;)

Whilst I think this post is slightly OTT, as IMHO Morley has been excellent again this year, I do agree with your point to an extent.

IMO Morley hasn't actually been our best player, with Westwood sweeping the board at the club awards ceremony.

Not interested in scoring cheap points through digs, I would be happy for any of these three to win, and would not argue with it at all.

Adrian Morley he should of got last year, so he must get it this yr.

Adrian Lam should have won it in 2002, so he has to get it this year.
