Smith leads Dally M voting

Melbourne skipper Cameron Smith is in contention for his second Dally M Player of the Year award.

Voting will be hidden from the public after this weekend but as it stands Smith leads the count on 20 points, five clear ahead of Mitchell Pearce and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck.

Smith won the award back in 2006 and has been at his trademark best this season, helping Storm to currently sit two games clear on top of the NRL ladder.

The Dally M voting system has changed this year with players ineligible to receive votes during Test and Origin matches.

However to accommodate for those on representative duty, a player’s best 21 point-receiving matches will be counted towards their final vote tally.
