Provan Summons: Graham on track to be fan favourite

It took only one NRL game for Bulldogs forward James Graham to become a fan-favourite, with the English import leading voting for the first round of the Provan Summons Award.

Graham played 66 minutes in his NRL debut, made over 50 tackles and more than 110 meters from 16 hit ups, earning him three Provan Summons Award points from Rugby League fans around the world.

Other big scorers from the opening round include two-try hero for the Gold Coast Titans, Jamal Idris, Warriors dynamo Shaun Johnson and Broncos halfback Peter Wallace.

Winning the game for their team however hasn’t been enough to see Benji Marshall and Anthony Minichiello earn enough votes to secure the three Provan Summons Award points available for their respective matches.
