The 2013 Willie M Medal: Round 22

Filed in NRL, Willie M by on August 12, 2013


Manu Vatuvei won’t win the Willie M Medal this year but his performance on Sunday is worthy of note. We all know Big Manu is capable of a stinker and he pulled one of those out against Manly. While he committed four handling errors, it was his work in defence that was particularly astounding. He showed the litheness of a toilet block and the turning circle of former WWF champ Yokozuna. He is wonderful with the ball but fairly heinous without it.

    Sean Aspinall clearly needs to watch the Parra-Wests game again.

    If Blake Ayshford wasn't good for 3 points, then I'll give it away.

    Seems a bit harsh to give Ray Thompson a point after he scored 3 trys.
