The 2013 Willie M Medal: Round 4

Filed in NRL, Willie M by on April 1, 2013

It has been a rough time for last season’s boom midyear transfers with Sandor Earl storming to the equal lead in the 2013 Willie M Medal and Krisnan Inu collecting points for the fourth straight week. Earl was again dreadful against Newcastle – and is the current leader in errors. Inu, who sits third in the count, may be saved from the ignominy of the medal by an expected long-term suspension. Tony Williams was lucky not to extend his lead after another guile-less showing against the Rabbitohs. Ben Roberts has jumped to the top of the count as well with another vintage Roberts performance in the Eels' 50-0 loss. Peter Wallace, who is usually around the mark, is going to be right in contention for the medal if his current form continues and Anthony Griffin persists with him.

    Can I back Simon Mannering for the Willie M anywhere?

    Sandow deserved all 6 points in that game. His only involvement was as a turnstile

    How didn't Chris Sandow score points in the game against the Roosters, now that the shoulder charge is gone he doesn't even bother trying to make an effort to stop the opposition.

      I was wondering the same thing. Nine missed tackles is bad even by his turnstile standards.

    vai toutai is on fire. there are plenty of experienced nuffies in front of him but is it inconceivable a player could win the medal in their debut year?
