Slightly off topic, but just made me remember looking at the Dally M points - anybody else picking up that the balance at the Raiders seems to have shifted in terms of who is the dominant half? Without a doubt last season it was Wighton and Williams was more given the role of off the cuff type plays. I know it's early days and maybe George just had a great game but he did seem to be taking a lot more control.

I think that is a natural evolution of their roles at the Raiders. While Williams has a good running game, it is the key strength for Wighton and getting him to attack more on the edges will be a goal of Stuart.

I think Stuart is on record as saying he wants to see Williams being more vocal and manage a game more and so he will get better in this aspect. His kicking game (particularly short kicking) is also first class.

I was worried initially that Williams and Wighton were too similar but I think they are starting to compliment each other really well and I expect Williams to continue to be more involved.

Overall, I think Williams has done very well in the NRL so far.

The failure of Luke Keary to gain a point in the Roosters vs Tigers game, when Keary was obviously the best player on the field in a game won by the Roosters 40-6, has caused an uproar in rugby league circles in Australia. The judge, former Brisbane player Sam Thaiday, even gave one point to Wests Tigers full back Dane Laurie ahead of Keary. That is ridiculous. Thaiday's points went:

3. Brett Morris

2. James Tedesco

1. Dane Laurie.

 

In my opinion, and the opinion of many other astute judges, the points awarded should have been:

3. Luke Keary

2. James Tedesco

1. Brett Morris

 

‘What the hell is going on?’ NRL ‘farce’ exposed after Keary snubbing

The Dally M’s controversial points-scoring system is under fire again after Sydney Roosters halfback Luke Keary’s masterclass against the Wests Tigers went unrewarded.

Keary was at his classy best in the 40-6 win on Sunday, finishing with an imposing stats line that would have earned him man-of-the-match honours in most games.

The 29-year old had four try assists, two linebreak assists, two linebreaks, 74 running metres, 19 tackles and 316 kicking metres in an all-round dominant display.

Red-hot Roosters rip through Tigers

Keary though did not receive a single point, with judge Sam Thaiday instead giving three points to Brett Morris, two to James Tedesco and one to Tigers fullback Daine Laurie.

Morris scored three tries, busted six tackles and ran for 197 metres in the win while Tedesco was also at his devastating best with two tries, 11 tackle breaks and 181 running metres.

The decision to give Laurie a point in a team that was outclassed by 34 points has caused the most controversy though.

Admittedly, the Tigers fullback was far and away his side’s best on a dismal afternoon with 178 running metres, nine tackle busts and three linebreaks.

 

But Fox League commentator Andrew Voss could not believe Keary did not poll a single point given Laurie, in spite on his stellar individual effort, played in a team that lost by 34 points.

“We’ve got a massive problem,” he said on SEN 1170’s Breakfast with Vossy.

“Let’s not make light of this. The Dally Ms are meant to be the most prestigious award in rugby league. You can talk about ‘it’s personal judgment and all that’ but the round one call on James Tedesco only getting one point when he set up three tries and scored three himself - that was a farce.”

For context, Tedesco had three tries, six tackle busts, three try assists, four linebreak assists and 98 run metres in the 46-4 win over Manly last week.

“Now we’ve topped it. We have a new gold medal winner,” Voss continued.

“Sam Thaiday what were you watching? Did you see the bloke wearing the seven for the Roosters.

“The authority and dazzle Luke Keary played with yesterday, I’ll put it in his top 20 games of his career and he hasn’t picked up a point in the Dally M voting.

“Daine Laurie was elusive when he touched the ball but how on earth did he get a point ahead of Luke Keary. What the hell is going on? We have a crisis here.”

While Brett Morris etched his name into the record breaks by becoming the first player to score hat-tricks in the opening two rounds, Voss added Keary still deserved the full three points.

“Brett Morris, I will say this - has he got the three points because of the feat,” he said.

“It was a great feat but he wasn’t the best on the field. I would’ve given the three to Keary, two to Tedesco - you can take your pick. Keary has not picked up a point from yesterday. That is a joke.”

While voting will always be a subjective process, an overhaul of the Dally M system has been floated before by Peter V’landys.

Last year he suggested every player be ranked out of 10 for every game before adding up those points to determine the Dally M medallist.

He said at the time that it would address players who are in a strong team where multiple stars are competing for points.

The Daily Telegraph reported last month that idea was one of many on the agenda as an advisory panel met to discuss proposed changes.

Latrell Mitchell powers to the top of the Dally M table while Gold Coast's two big forward signing are living up to expectations.

Can't believe that Herbie Farnworth didn't get a any points for his part in the Broncos first win this year.  I thought he was the best on the park.

James Fisher-Harris has stormed into contention for the Dally M and sits 3rd on 11 points behind Ryan Papenhuyzen on 12 and Latrell Mitchell on 13 but Mitchell cannot win the award now as he has been suspended in the season.

Special mention for Tom Trbojevic who is on 6 points but has only played 2 games and bagged the 3 points in each.

Personally, I am amazed that Brian To'o is only on 3 points as he has been outstanding... it shows that picking up Dally M points in a winning team is not always that easy.

On the NRL.com leaderboard there is an asterisk next to Latrell Mitchel explaining he s ineligible due to suspension but I assume the same is true of Tino Fa'asuamaleaui who has also served a ban for a shoulder charge (but no asterisk)?

Any player suspended for two separate offences or for more than two games is immediately deemed ineligible for the dally m.

I also think cleary has had a two game suspension so will drop 6 points 3 for each game he was suspended.
