I N A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN
LIKE the Brownlow Medal presentation, league’s night of nights has become a red carpet gala to watch and this year the women of Fox League – Yvonne Sampson, Lara Pitt, Hannah Hollis and Jessica Yates (pictured) – will again lead the coverage of what should be a hotly-contested awards show.
Cronulla Sharks playmaker James Maloney was leading the Dally M medal count before it went in-camera after round 12, with Newcastle Knights rising star Kalyn Ponga hot on his heels. Ponga has had a sensational season and was a standout in the losing Queensland side.
Also watch out for Warriors’ Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, South Sydney hooker Damien Cook, Sharks fullback Valentine Holmes and Storms five-eighth Cameron Munster, who should all poll well.
