As voted by you: Best Cup halfback in 25 years

The race to be named the best Intrust Super Cup halfback during the past 25 years has been taken out by a superb talent who has been in fine form for Burleigh Bears for a number of years now. 

We asked you, the fans, who you thought should take out the title and the votes are in, with Bears star Jamal Fogarty securing 33 per cent of the 1767 votes.

One of a select group of two-time premiership winners at the Bears, Fogarty's more recent form saw him once again sign an NRL contract with the Gold Coast Titans.

Fogarty, the most recent winner of the Petero Civoniceva Medal for player of the year in the Cup, beat fellow deserving nominees Ricky Bird (22 per cent), Shane Perry (20 per cent), Todd Murphy (19 per cent) and Chris Sheppard (six per cent). 

Here's what some of you had to say during voting:

"What a field!!! Jamal will probably get it due to being the most recent but I’m not sure you can even vote one over the other...." - Dean Allen

"Shane Perry by a mile" - Adam Starr 

Surely Fogarty

Brenton Sullivan 

"Personally how can you go past Ricky Bird" - Lawrence Ellison 

"If you didn't vote for Shane Perry you legit have no idea. The guy dominated and had games on a dime no one comes close... His football brain and how he controlled the game was exceptional couldn't watch him enough... This is a no contest Perry by a land slide" - Matty Angus

Others to get a mention by fans included Central Queensland Capras' highest points scorer Nat Bowman and Wynnum Manly Seagulls talent Mathew Seamark. 

"Mathew Seamark 200 games and second highest point scorer in the competition with 1255. Not to mention a World Cup or two! The blokes a state treasure" - Steve Mitchell
