Dally M points 2021 - It’s between these 5 players


Recommended Posts


Nathan Cleary's 3 point haul in Brisbane sends him 4 points clear at the top of the Dally M leaderboard.  Teammate James Fisher-Harris is up to 3rd with 2 points.

Again though, shout out to Tom Trbojevic who is up to 12 points from just 5 games with four 3 point games.

Adam Doueihi is also having a good season at Wests - playing very effectively at either five eight or centre.

Tommy Turbo, on fire

Manly’s form has improved altogether since his return.

He is a key man, that's for sure. Just as Cleary is to the Panthers. 

I don't know whether Manly would fall back to their early season form if they lost Tom again but they wouldn't be the same side. Maybe Origin will show us how the Panthers are without Cleary. 

This is why I think Melbourne are still right at the top of the Premiership favourites as they have been without Papenhuyzen, Grant, Munster and Hughes at times this season (sometimes all 4) and still won. They are not heavily reliant on any one player.

After this week the voting goes behind closed doors so we will have to use our judgement on who is keeping their challenge for the Dally M medal up.

Clearly stays ahead of his closest challengers RTS, Fisher-Harris and Tom Trbojevic.

  • Graham changed the title to Dally M points 2021 - Round 12 - After which points awarded not made public

Just looking at the top of the Dally M table since it went behind closed doors after Round 12.  We have had a shortened round with byes and a full round since then.

I don't think there would have been a lot of movement at the top with State of Origin players rested and James Fisher-Harris and RTS both playing in losing teams.

Despite a couple of errors, Latrell Mitchell may have picked up some points at the weekend but he can't win the award due to picking up a ban.

Do we think any of the players are making a move up the table?  Maybe some Storm (Hughes) or Eels players (Mitch Moses, Reed Mahoney or Gutherson) after two big wins over the last 2 weeks.

You would have to think that Nathan Cleary and Tom Trbojevic picked up 3 points each this week.

This may turn into a two horse race. Which would be even closer if Trbojevic hadn't missed the first 5 rounds.

So who’ll win it?

I have TTurbo out in front for me.

He must be favourite as he had some massive performances but I still think Nathan Cleary will be very close.  He was 6 points ahead the last time we saw and when Penrith win... which they do a lot... he is always front and centre.  This week was the first time Penrith lost with Cleary playing this year wasn't it.

Yes, you're right

The National Rugby League (NRL) tonight revealed the Top 5 players in the 2021 Dally M Medal countdown. Daly Cherry-Evans, Nathan Cleary, James Tedesco, Tom Trbojevic and Cody Walker will battle for the game’s highest individual honour.

Interesting that DCE is in the mix. This suggests he may have taken a few 3 point hauls later in the season which may effect Tom Trbojevic's chances.

Because of this, I am going for Clearly to have stayed ahead of the pack and pick up the award.
