The Chrissy W Awards 2020

Alright, the season is run and won, with the Storm overcoming the combined power of Penrith and Channel 9 to take out the 2020 premiership. Congratulations to all involved.


And while we are all sad to see Rugbaleeg go away for another year, and 2020 was a memorable season for so many reasons, but the most exciting is that this year the famed Chrissy W awards for Worst and Dirtiest have been expanded to better recognise the lack of talent in the NRL. For the first time there will be a full squad of 13 to fill out and we here at the awards are truly excited.


So without further ado, here are this year's awards and winners:


Fullback: Clint Gutherson

Wing: Blake Ferguson

Centre: Campbell Graham

Centre: Zac Lomax

Wing: Valentine Holmes

Five-Eighth: Anthony Milford

Halfback: Mitchell Pearce

Prop: Jared Waerea-Headhigh

Hooker: Issac Luke

Prop: James Fisher-Headhigh

Second-Row: Coen Hess

Second-Row: Luciano Leilua

Lock: Patrick Carrigan


Coach: Paul McGregor (yeah you all thought I was going with Siebold didn't you?)


And the prestigious Chrissy W goes to...wait am I reading this right?...but I thought Campbell was a certainty for a threepeat...really...most votes?...I see...I'm not disputing it, I'm just surprised...no...no...I see your point...


And the prestigious Chrissy W goes to... Clint Gutherson. Congratulations Clint, you were far and away the most overrated player in the competition this year. Please accept your trophy and, as we always say, try not to drop it as you exit the stage.
