The 2013 Willie M Medal: Round 10

Filed in NRL, Willie M by on May 20, 2013

Well, he lasted just 14 minutes before being felled like a giant oak but Tony Williams managed to extend his lead at the top of the Willie M Medal count to seven by polling two votes in the loss to the Knights. In those 14 minutes, he managed two errors and conceded a penalty in another dreadful showing from the man destined to be crowned the worst buy of the year.

    FYI Krisnan inu is bulldogs not parra (check your leader board standings) you might need to give yourself a willie m vote for that……

    Tony Williams polling 2 points after only 14 minutes? I’m a bulldogs man and like you question what tony brings to the team (except laziness) but surely you’ve judged harshly. I would’ve thought that over 80 minutes inu has him covered easily?

      I did grade him T-Rex right up to his worst given his short on-field stint. Mind you, he was on track for a performance worthy of about 33 votes based on his "efforts" to that point. To be honest, there were at least 10 players (including a couple of Knights) who deserved votes in a match where no shortage of blokes put in real stinkers.
