Frontrunners - 2019 Player of the Year Awards

Melbourne Storm’s night of nights is less than a month away - the club will crown its best player of the season in front of over 700 guests at Crown Palladium on October 8.

An opportunity to rub shoulders with players and coaches as we celebrate another season, tickets are available for purchase here.

We take a look at a few of the frontrunners to take out the coveted Player of the Year award:

Cameron Munster

Currently in second place on the Dally M leaderboard, Munny could go back-to-back as the club's POTY given his scintillating form during the regular season. He has averaged 99 run metres and 200 kicking metres this year, with seven tries to his name.

Cameron Smith

The skipper this year became the first player in rugby league history to reach 400 first-grade games and shows no signs of slowing down. One of the most decorated players in the league, Cam continues to break and set records. Named Player of the Year a record seven times, the club stalwart is always in contention.

Kenny Bromwich

Kenny has been in career-best form this season since moving to the left edge and has cemented his place as a starting back-rower. His deft passing and rock-solid defence, as well as his innate leadership skills could earn him the club's highest honour.

Dale Finucane

Built for Origin in every sense, our co-vice cap made his long-awaited debut for the Blues this year and was Mr Consistent at club level. Always tough, a born leader and the ultimate team player, would be a deserving winner.
