Toyota NRL Dream Team winner announced

Rounds 1 to 26 of the Telstra Premiership are done and dusted and what a competition it has been. The Ben Barba-inspired Bulldogs collected the minor premiership and nine Dally M awards while the Eels picked up rugby league’s least-wanted award in the dreaded wooden spoon.

The competition was just as fierce in Toyota NRL Dream Team this year, with a record number of players battling it out for glory and bragging rights. Along the way, we introduced brand new All Stars and Origin mini-games, giving NRL fans more opportunities to indulge in their passion for fantasy footy. 

Congratulations to all of our fans for being part of our biggest Dream Team season ever. We hope you came out on top in all your leagues and more importantly, had lots of fun along the way. Well done to our overall, major prize winner Josh Hergenham (team jgh) who’s won the brand new Toyota FJ Cruiser. A close runner up, taking home $1000 cash, was Matt Darcy (team bunny badgers).

Matty Johns was named the overall winner of the Toyota NRL Dream Team Top Weekly Score Prize, while Dan Power won the Eliminator prize. Both win $1000 cash, four NRL category 1 Grand Final tickets and bragging rights for life. 

As their respective club’s top performers, the following Dream Team coaches won our new club champion prize packs, that includes a cap, jersey, and scarf, as well as two 2013 non-ticketed NRL club memberships from their favourite clubs. Congratulations to:
Arko Muratovic – Broncos
Graeme Handsaker – Bulldogs
Lisa Mckenzie – Cowboys
Josh Hergenhan – Dragons
Beverley Ferguson – Eels
Sam Hinton – Knights
