NRL.com's Dally M count: Widdop jumps to second

Dragons five-eighth Gareth Widdop has moved into equal second on NRL.com's unofficial Dally M leaderboard after starring in the Dragons' dramatic comeback victory over the Knights on Sunday afternoon. 

Widdop spearheaded the Red V's attack in the second half, notching up four try assists, three line breaks and two line-break assists to orchestrate a dramatic comeback from 18-points down to keep his side well entrenched in the NRL Telstra Premiership top eight and was awarded three points by NRL.com journalist Chris Kennedy.

Widdop was in eighth place on 13 points when Dally M voting went behind closed doors at the end of Round 14. 

Cronulla forward Wade Graham moved into seventh place in the unofficial count, registering a point from NRL.com journalist Martin Gabor in the Sharks' loss to Manly at Southern Cross Group Stadium. Graham scored a try, ran 177 metres, made seven tackle breaks and a line break in a losing side. 

Luke Keary jumped into ninth on NRL.com's unofficial Dally M leaderboard after masterminding an epic Roosters fight back against the Storm at Adelaide Oval on Saturday night.
