Surprised to see Demant nominated, she's the weakest link in BF backline IMO & Harrison not getting nominated is just rubbish.

Another year, another year of Australian snubs. Probably give us Foketi as a consolation.

Nick Frost over Arundell easily - he's played 28 minutes for fucks sake. Am is a joke, barely played either. Missed a Welsh Test and only played against NZ didn't he? So 4 Tests this year?

No Ardie just shows the immense NH bias.

I think I would've nominated Valetini, Ardie, JvdF and Etzebeth with Ardie winning.

Yeah look they don't really give a fuck. It's fan appeasement. Simon Middleton coach of the year is funny as well, didn't really need to strain his brain much.

I wonder if we'll see much of Toole at the Brumbies next year?

Didn't even win the RWC when they were massive favs either.

No Ardie or Eden again, craziness.

Am should have been there last year, has he even played this year.
 

Marce

John Solomon (38)
Koroibete the lone Australian
Kerevi is the other one who has a real chance to be there. Maybe Tupou from few years ago and that's all. A fit Hooper too.

Kerevi and Hooper played few games this year and Tupou is not even a starter in Australia
