Wests Tigers hooker Robbie Farah leads the 2019 Dally M Leaderboard after Round 2 following two Man of the Match performances against the Sea Eagles and Warriors so far.
Farah is the only player in the competition to poll three points in each of his first two matches, with the veteran hooker chalking up three tries, three try assists, three linebreak assists and two linebreaks in his opening two games of the season.
Esan Marsters and Josh Aloiai also picked up points in the Round 1 win over Manly, while Benji Marshall and reigning Dally M Halfback of the Year Luke Brooks polled points off the back of their game management against the Warriors on Sunday.
Farah has never won the Dally M Player of the Year in his career — finishing runner-up in 2007 and 2010, where he was named the Dally M Hooker of the Year.
