NRL to consider voting mechanism for for best player award
July 13, 2018 4:30 am
The NRL will consider changing the voting mechanism which awarded Billy Slater the Wally Lewis medal for best player across the State of Origin series, after a storm of criticism.
Slater became the first player to claim the medal from the losing side of an Origin series when he was awarded the honor after Queensland’s game three win on Wednesday.
Slater was out injured in the opener but was arguably the Maroons’ best upon his return in game two and again in the final match.
Meanwhile, Panthers will take on Sharks at 8pm while Knights meet Eels at 9.55pm tonight.
