Dally M winner L

Find out who walked away as part of history in NRL rugby league's night of nights.

AFL has the Brownlow Medal, football has the Ballon d'Or and the NRL rugby league competition has the Dally M Awards. Named after Dally Messenger, the man who put rugby league on the map back in its inaugural 1908 season, the Dally M is the NRL's most prestigious award.

The Dally M is won by the player who collects the most votes at the end of the regular rounds of the NRL season. An ex-Rugby League player, often a commentator, is charged with handing out points for the game they've been chosen to review. The three best players are awarded three points, two points and one point respectively.

The voting goes behind closed doors after Round 12, with the final half of the season revealed on the night. The player with the most points when it has all come to an end receives the Dally M. However, the best players in each position are also honoured. As is the best rookie. Plus, there are awards for highest try scorer (Ken Irvine medal), fan favourite (Provan-Summons medal), coach of the year, captain of the year and women's player of the year.

There is also the Peter Frilingos medal, which is awarded to the best headline moment of the year.

The 2019 Dally M Awards winners were revealed on 2 October at a red carpet ceremony held in Sydney's Hordern Pavilion. To see a recap of the night and Dally M commentary, you need to pick yourself up a Kayo Sports 14-day free trial.
