Dolphins fullback Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow sits in outright first atop the Dally M leaderboard after picking up maximum points in his side's Round 2 win over the Raiders on Saturday.
Tabuai-Fidow, who scored a double in the Dolphins' 20-14 triumph, picked up three votes from each judge – giving him a maximum six points from the match to take top spot on the ladder after picking up two points previously in his side's Round 1 win.
The 21-year-old is one of two Dolphins players sitting in the top 10 of voting with hooker Jeremy Marshall-King tied for third spot alongside eight other players including Broncos fullback Reece Walsh and Bulldogs winger Jacob Kiraz, who each scored the maximum six points in their respective Round 2 wins.
Roosters young gun Joseph Suaali'i and Warriors forward Tohu Harris each picked up four points in the Tricolours' narrow win at Allianz Stadium, with Harris moving to outright second on the ladder after collecting three points in Round 1.
Walsh makes his mark
The revamped Dally M voting process will see two judges watch each game in 2023 and award points on a three-two-one basis, meaning a maximum of six points are available for every match of the 2023 Telstra Premiership season.
