The 2013 Willie M Medal: Round 23

Nathan Fien has announced his retirement and could retire with the Willie M Medal. Fien again polled against the Sharks, the Dragons nearly pinching victory in spite of Fien’s ineptitude.

    What game were you watching mate? Beau Scott is the reason the Knights finally have a decent right side defence, he stopped at least three breaks on the weekend.
    Newcastle v Melbourne:

    3 – James McManus (costly errors, woefully out of position in attack – forward passes were not Leilua's fault as McManus was a yard in front of him whenever the ball came his way. Has begun his usual slump after half a season's good form).

    2 – Korbin Sims (ran with all the impact of a giant cream puff, seemed terrified of getting involved, inexcusable for a man of his size who spent as long as he did on the field).

    1 – Sisa Waqa (the Storm's worst, errors and bad defensive reads were the story of his game).
