Better players? Probably

Played better? No way

DWZ needs to learn how to tackle for starters.

Unfortunately he has a point, Tedesco seems like the obvious choice.

Why? He's played in 3 International games, one of which Australia lost.

The fact he was a winner in the SOO & Championship is immaterial as those competitions weren't considered in this.

The award is chosen by rugby league media in both the northern and southern hemispheres and covers all fully sanctioned international games from last December’s World Cup final to Sunday’s second Test between England and New Zealand.

No he doesn’t because NSW performances don’t matter because they aren’t internationals. If the Aussies want to see an Aussie win it then play more internationals. Same when Sinfield won 2012 I believe the Aussies didn’t bother playing anything at the end of the year.

Spot on!

He was alos very much outplayed by Watene-Zelezniak in the NZ v Australia game last month, who has been outshone by Tommy Makinson throughout 2018. Tommy has been great for England, and his performance last weekend (both defensively and in attack) is up there with the best individual performances I have seen from an England/GB player in a test game. Fully deserved imo

James Tedesco played in an Aus side that lost against New Zealand and nowt else.

zelezniak played for a New Zealand team that has lost the series to england (plus was at fault for every England try in first test)

Shaun johnson Played for a New Zealand team that has lost the series to England.

The best test side this year has been England after winning a one off test with NZ, warm up against the French and then a series against New Zealand.

It should be an English player that wins it under the rules.

Correct choice and we’ll deserved for me. Although I am biased against Wakefield so it should have Bernard Tom johnstone.
