What's everyone's opinion on how they now judge the Golden Boot award and that it is actually based on International fixtures only rather than over the whole season?

James Tedesco would be my choice of the best RL player over the whole of the 2019 season

IRL Golden Boot nominees: John Bateman (Great Britain), Damien Cook (Australia), Payne Haas (Australia), Viliame Kikau (Fiji), Tui Lolohea (Tonga), Kevin Naiqama (Fiji), Sio Siua Taukeiaho (Tonga), Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (New Zealand), Jared Waerea-Hargreaves (New Zealand), Brandon Wakeham (Fiji).

How can 2 or 3 test matches be used to judge who is the worlds best player?

Your best player in the world for 2019 would be.....

to all those that criticised this team...
tonight's for you"

You just can't judge the best RL player of the year on such a small sample size, it's ridiculous. If we had an international calendar even close to RU then yes, brilliant. I just can't believe that supposed RL journos etc thought this was a better way than before; it seems like change for change sake when they did it last year, or trying to differentiate it more from the Daly M.

I'd have maybe picked Bateman if he'd have had a good series down under. He had such a massive impact for Canberra straight off the bat - but then again his NRL form is nothing to do with it.

Lets be honest if should be the best player based on his club and international form but then how much weight do you give to each part.

So basically it's who's been the best player in these few games the past month or so. :EH:

Anyway I agree Tedesco was the best player last season and tbh was the year before.

It's based on international performances, so it has to go to one of the Tongans really.

Thinking about who should win, it's got to be Taukeiaho from the 2 Tongans.
