Bulldogs winger Jacob Kiraz has shot to the top of the Dally M standings after picking up five points in his side's Round 3 win over Wests Tigers.
Kiraz picked up five of a maximum six points on offer from the two judges, while five-eighth Matt Burton collected three points from the 26-22 win at Belmore.
With 11 points through three rounds, Kiraz leads all players in the Dally M standings with Broncos duo Payne Haas (9) and Adam Reynolds (8) close behind after their undefeated start to the year continued against the Dragons.
Haas and Reynolds both collected points in Brisbane's win, with fullback Reece Walsh also picking up a point to take his season total to seven.
Walsh was brilliant in attack
Titans skipper Tino Fa'asuamaleaui collected a maximum six points in his side's upset win over the Storm – taking him alongside Haas into equal second on the ladder – with Dolphins duo Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow and Thomas Gilbert both on eight after Wayne Bennett's side got the job done against the Knights.
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.
