Did you know that for six consecutive years the winner of the81stminute.com’s Arthur Beetson Medal has gone on to win the Dally M that same season?

Now that’s a stat!

And did you know that since we started giving out our own player of the year award in 2012, just once (2013) has our winner not claimed the Dally M?

Yeah… yeah.. we’re pretty cool.

But what if we gave out the awards today – what would they look like?

Wests Tigers fans wouldn’t be happy but Panthers half Nathan Cleary would take out his first Arthur Beetson Medal. His dad, as selected by us, would take out Coach of the Year too!

Some awards are selected by the81stminute.com team including Coach of the Year, Rookie of the Year and Utility MVP.

The 2020 Arthur Beetson Medal will be announced at the completion of the regular season.

Check them all out below.
