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.


You don’t even know what the golden boot award is. Tip for you, it’s not “the best player throughout the 2018 season” as you claimed above

Under new rules introduced this year, the Golden Boot award is determined by performances in internationals from the 2017 World Cup final to last Sunday.

Fair result based on this. Now if it was club games too then fair enough.... It would probably be someone else.

Whitehead would have been the more worthy winner in my opinion.
Glad for Makinson though. The criteria these days is people who have performed on the biggest of stages. With Australia getting beat by new zealand and us beating them I can see why a English player has won. Thought tedesco would have had a good chance though with the New South Wales series win.
Thought Latrell Mitchell was unlucky to miss out aswel on nomination also.

With his landslide victory in the golden boot, Makinson now his name etched in history along side other greats of the game such as Darren Lockyer, Billy Slater, Greg Inglis, Kevin Sinfield, Jonathon Thurston, Shaun Johnson and Cameron Smith who have all also won this prestigious honour

Thought they would have waited until they had played the Kiwi game as I thought the betting was pretty even with the short listed players. No complaints if any of the other listed players would have won it, we might get a few complaints from 1 or 2 wakey fans, "you know who fans" who have a blinkered opinion on these matters.

Well done Tommy Makinson done the British International and Superleague proud, great for Whitehead to be on that short list as well.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.
Percival-Lomax--Grace-Thompson-Makinson-Swift-Walmsley, not Eastmond...the future is coming.

As others have said it is awarded solely on performances at international level.

When you look at how Makinson has performed in the mid season test and the first 2 against NZ it’s difficult to argue with the decision.

I find it amusing how the Aussies are whinging about it when they’ve only played 2 games that count towards the voting. A WC final that they won 6 nil and a comprehensive loss against NZ won’t really put their players in the reckoning.

If he's got the Aussies whinging then hes fully justified his award. Well done Tommy.

We seem to have this desperation in RL to give awards and trophys out for everything. Not sure if its lead by UK influences but its extremely devaluing. The GB criteria is wrong. To take into account a game from 1 year ago, a smattering of meaningless tests and one test series between 2 countries, all games of which numerous different players have taken part is ludicrous. Theyd have been better off cancelling the GB. TM should be man of the series instead which he will likely get.

Other examples, the tropy for the England France test. Pointless. The Bev Risman Trophy, Leeds v Leigh. Pointless.

It's got Fitler spewing so it's fine by me. Typical Australian arrogance saying he's only seen him play once so how can he be winner? Don't believe that statement for a second but same logic could be said on Tedesco.Not everyone watches NRL etc. The criteria was set last year. TM wins fair and square.

Its a great quote by Fittler, next years award should be called the golden boot for players Fittler could be bothered to watch.

He's saying Tudesco had a great SOO, what relevance does that have to an international award. Tommy would have no doubt gone well if Lancs had played Yorks.
