Is it really? Really struggled to see how he is deemed to be the best player in the world througout the 2018 season,especially when you look at the likes of Valentine Homes etc.. If the Aussies thought Sinfield was a joke the year he won it I wonder what they think to this one ? Makes you wonder how on earth JM missed out last year after the year he had...

By the way, yes he had a great game against NZL and thoroughly deserves the shirt on that performance.. i think he has performed very well in an England shirt unlike many others I can admit when I made an error in judgement and I did just that when questioning WBs selection over TJ.

Can't believe I find myself agreeing with you. :shock: Whilst he's a cracking winger he's nowhere near the best player in the world so there is a fundamental flaw in the shortlisting process.

When you look at the list of previous winners he's way below the level of some of these guys....

Like I said though, cracking player but a little undeserved IMO.

Almost as much of a joke as the RFL. The lad must be squirming with embarrassment

Yeah, dead 'embarrassing' to get such an award isn't it?

Well done, however why don’t they wait until the final test this weekend and take that into account as well? The international schedule is small enough already to use for criteria without deciding with a game still to go.

First time it has been awarded to a winger. Only one position left without an award since it started.

It's awarded based solely on international performances, so it's a fair result IMO. Any of them on the list would've been a fair choice
