2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Dane Neville
4 - Aaron Heremaia, WAR
Ran the ball well from dummy half and was rewarded with two tries - including a ripper from halfway.
2 - Micheal Luck, WAR
Tackled his guts out all night and you can tell the Warriors have missed him.
1 - Feleti Mateo, WAR
Kept on the bench for the opening 20 but once he got on was a weapon. Scored a try and looked dangerous with every touch.
Judge: Haylen Southon
4 - James Maloney, WAR
Potted 6 from 6 kicking at goal and had a great try from a run-around he initiated with Mannering. Just controlled things beautifully.
2 - Aaron Heremaia, WAR
Provided an attacking spark and proved the catalyst for several big plays for the Warriors. Also scored a sensational solo try after breaking the Canterbury line.
1 - Simon Mannering, WAR
Clearly enjoying being back in the second row. And like every good captain, never shirks his work.

GAME STATS
2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Michael McLucas
4 - Sam Thaiday, BRI
Consistent performance over the 80 minutes with some great runs and great defence. The Broncos' right edge was dominant, particularly in the second half, and Big Sam was a huge part of that.
2 - Darren Lockyer, BRI
Quiet in the first half but took control in the second half with a typical Lockyer performance in which he had a hand in all 3 Broncos' tries.
1 - Josh Hoffman, BRI
Kick returns were outstanding and made some great darts out of dummy half. Capped it off with a try after timing his run perfectly for the Lockyer grubber.
Judge: Craig Buchanan
4 - Darren Lockyer, BRI
Led by example directing the Broncs throughout the game. He set up 3 of the tries and showed us what we'll miss next season.
2 - Jharal Yow Yeh, BRI
Scored a double and some great plays in both attack and defence, his second try was stunning.
1 - Corey Parker, BRI
Made his normal thousand runs and thousand tackles and also set up the 1st try. Kicked for goal well, all in all a great effort from the old fella.
BRISBANE - Anthony Griffin and Darren Lockyer

GOLD COAST - John Cartwright and Scott Prince

GAME STATS
2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Justin Davies
4 - Issac Luke, SOU
Scored South Sydney's first try and was a constant threat from dummy half.
2 - Mitchell Pearce, SYD
Most of the Roosters points came through his playmaking, as he was the dominant one in the Roosters halves.
1 - Jason Ryles, SYD
Besides his little field goal attempt at Full-time, he was dangerous with every carry, getting regular offloads away.
Judge: Nigel Wilbow
4 - Nate Myles, SYD
Registered 35 tackles and 13 hitups for 162m. Played a lone role against the South Sydney forwards and made some very important tackles up the middle.
2 - Issac Luke, SOU
Great from dummy half, some probing runs that put the Roosters defence on the back foot. Finished with 118m.
1 - Greg Inglis, SOU
Tough running and solid defence from the big centre. Made some key tackles and scored the try that got Souths into golden point.

7:35pm (Local) 16 July @ Centrebet Stadium, Penrith
NRLTweet Game Summary: Penrith score on the final play of regulation; then Luke Walsh hits a field goal in Golden Point to beat the unfortunate Eels 23-22.
Injuries: Trent Waterhouse (Knee - late withdrawal), Nigel Plum (Shoulder), Luke Lewis (Shoulder), Jarryd Hayne (Knee/Ankle), Jeff Robson (Hammy - late withdrawal), Etu Uaisele (Concussion), Shane Shackleton (Concussion)
GAME STATS
2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Warrick Nicolson
4 - Lachlan Coote, PEN
His best game of 2011. Was huge when Penrith needed him to be a difference maker and after scoring a try late in the first half, he set up one and scores the match-tying try late in the second half.
2 - Jarryd Hayne, PAR
He's a gun no matter where he plays but the Eels are looking more dangerous with him at first receiver regularly. His two try saving tackles were superb but ultimately that didn't save them when his final clearing kick didn't clear the defender... and you know what happened next.
1 - Petero Civoniceva, PEN
The veteran is playing as well as ever. Carried the Panthers forward all night and his second stint was inspirational with Nigel Plum and Luke Lewis off the field. Just edged Michael Jennings.
Judge: Ben Hoese
4 - Lachlan Coote, PEN
Outstanding support game. He was always in the right place, gaining valuable metres in kick returns. Bagged a double.
2 - Nathan Hindmarsh, PAR
Mr. 300 had his usual workhorse of a game. Excellent in defence and attack.
1 - Jarryd Hayne, PAR
Very good in attack and strong in defence. Set up 3 tries and saved 2 more. Only held back by a few horrible errors.

NRLTweet Game Summary: Wests Tigers beat the Cowboys 38-18 as the team finally execute their opportunities. Benji Marshall finds some form for the Tigers.
Injuries: Matthew Scott (Back - late withdrawal), Beau Ryan (Head), Todd Payten (Knee - late withdrawal)
GAME STATS
2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Matthew Duncan
4 - Tim Moltzen, WTG
Looked dangerous all night with the ball in hand but also did some good work off the ball. Scored a try and set one up.
2 - Benji Marshall, WTG
Getting back to his best, Played with plenty of control just when the Tigers needed it but also dipped into his bag of tricks.
1 - Matthew Bowen, NQL
BRILLIANCE - An amazing performance in a beaten side. The try he set up for Willie Tonga was as good as you will see.
Judge: Warrick Nicolson
4 - Benji Marshall, WTG
The class of Benji lifted the Tigers to a much needed win. His try in the 49th minute shifted the momentum of the game again and then he turned on the skills late in the match to seal the deal.
2 - Matthew Bowen, NQL
Brilliant in a team that ended up getting beaten by 20 points. Made a number of dazzling runs and is back into the form that we all feared we'd never see again post his multiple knee operations.
1 - Tim Moltzen, WTG
Looked dangerous around the ruck for the first time this year. Still tentative on kick returns but he made a number of key plays on the ball which makes Wade McKinnon's job of getting back into first grade tough.

GAME STATS
2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Greg Delaney
4 - Kevin Proctor, MEL
Very dangerous on the edge causing the Raiders defence all kinds of problems, running 104 metres and making  a handy 28 tackles.
2 - Matt Duffie, MEL
Scored 2 tries, the second was a beauty before his face plant. Worked hard and was always looking for the ball.
1 - Billy Slater, MEL
The usual game from him, safe as houses at the back and set up the try for Cronk that put the game beyond doubt.
Judge: Haylen Southon
4 - Cooper Cronk, MEL
Scored a try, and had a hand in several other attacking plays. With a controlled kicking game, he was the standout performer for the Storm.
2 - Cameron Smith, MEL
Although rested for the first 20 minutes of the game, he had an immediate impact on the game. His arrival saw the Storm attack click and he set up a try just before halftime.
1 - Jesse Bromwich, MEL
A sensational solo try. Laid a great platform for the Melbourne storm against the bigger Raiders forward pack.

GAME STATS
2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Matt Spillane
4 - Glenn Stewart, MAN
Barnstorming game from Stewart who was busy in both attack and defence. 37 tackles, 13 hit ups, 2 offloads, 1 linebreak and took advantage of the Sau injury to score his try..
2 - Daly Cherry-Evans, MAN
The rookie halfback continues to impress and despite having to make 26 tackles, still was able to have a hand in several tries.
1 - Jamie Lyon, MAN
Caused the Knights left edge defence grief all day. Bagged himself 2 tries including the opener after just 44 seconds.
Judge: Michael McLucas
4 - Jamie Lyon, MAN
Started off with a try in the first minute and scored another before halftime. Always looked dangerous and kicked better than last week with 4/6 attempts.
2 - Glenn Stewart, MAN
Worked hard all game and his try was not only a reward for his efforts but effectively ended the game after half an hour.
1 - Brett Stewart, MAN
Looks to be back to his best and put in a very solid performance in this game which included a try and a try assist.

7:05pm (Local) 18 July @ WIN Jubilee Stadium, Kogarah.
NRLTweet Game Summary: With 9 of first 10 sets, the Dragons race out to an 18-0 lead and Sharks can't recover. Dragons win 38-8 to end Cronulla's win streak.
Injuries: Dean Young (Knee - late withdrawal), Beau Scott (Knee - late withdrawal), Adam Cuthbertson (Arm), Jayson Bukuya (Ankle), Paul Gallen (Calf), Chad Townsend (Arm), Matthew Wright (Neck)
GAME STATS
2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Matthew Vickers
4 - Matt Prior, STI
Beau Scott not playing should have left hole in the Dragons right edge. Enter Matt Prior, and you’d have never known. 80 minutes, 19 runs for 136 metres, including every penalty tap on the right side and 30 tackles, ensuring the right side held the Sharks to nil.
2 - Michael Weyman, STI
Made a statement early with a ‘shooter’ out of the line to show the Sharks that they weren’t going to dominate this time around. Only played 41 minutes, but made 12 runs for 98 metres, 2 offloads, four tackle breaks and line break. Defensively, only 21 tackles, but each of them was quality.
1 - Matt Cooper, STI
Showed why he was the player the Dragons missed most during the Origin period; but in attack and defence. 12 runs for 152 metres; 2 offloads, one which was a supreme backhanded basketball pass; 6 tackle breaks, a line break and a line break assist. 11 tackles but a number were back to back on the try line as the momentum shifted in the second half. I will forgive the kick though....
Judge: Warrick Nicolson
4 - Darius Boyd, STI
While Jamie Soward was good - Boyd is the best player on the team and the most important. He instigated the team's attack down the left edge and with the game 18-0 after 20 minutes and the Cronulla right edge shot to bits - Boyd was the man responsible.
2 - Michael Weyman, STI
Made a statement for the St.George-Illawarra pack with an outstanding first half of power carries.
1 - Jamie Soward, STI
His kicking game was on song and he kept busy all night. His try to take advantage of some ball watching Cronulla players was pretty to watch. Also kicked 7 from 7.
ST.GEORGE-ILLAWARRA - Wayne Bennett and Matt Cooper

CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND - Shane Flanagan and Paul Gallen
