Tedesco voted as players champion and 3 Tigers in the team of the year? How on earth? Were half of the NRL players not included in this event?

7 Players were nominated by the RLPA for Players Champion …voted by their peers…

All NRL players available for selection in the Dream Team…

Teddy is quality but I’m surprised by this. Also surprised to see Nofo there but good luck to him - great clubman.

Ok, but it still begs the question - how on earth? There were heaps better players than some of the guys chosen in that team - think top 8 teams for a start.

Perhaps it was a case of anyone but Cameron Smith!

So, is there any criteria to this? I just can’t see it, he wasn’t all that good for us this year, certainly not worth the coin he was asking for

Coming home with a wet sail helps, just like representative selection from finals form, in the near memory. Tedesco’s first half year plus was not worthy of nomination.

Some very odd names in that team of the year.
From memory the voting process involves each player nominating 3 opposition players on a 3-2-1 basis after each game.
