Dally M Awards 2012 - Full List Of Winners Including Player Of The Year, Ben Barba
It was an awesome celebration of the footy this year as the best players in league swapped their sweaty jerseys for swanky suits to celebrate the NRL's night of nights at Sydney's Town Hall.
Tonight we found out who were the best players of the year. And with the team going as well as it has it was no surprise to see the Bulldogs dominate the winners list.
Ban Barba won four awards including the Player of the Year and the prestigious Provan Summons Medal, which is awarded to the most popular player in the NRL. Des Hasler (coach), Josh Morris (winger), Sam Kasiano (prop) were other Bulldogs to pick up gongs.
Other winners included Storm skipper Cameron Smith who won his third Hooker of the Year award, Titans enforcer Nate Myles who picked up two awards and Akuila Uate (Knights) who won Winger of the Year for the second straight year.
