Parramatta fullback Clint Gutherson closed the gap to Cameron Smith in NRL.com's unofficial Dally M leaderboard, helping the Eels to victory over the Storm at AAMI Park on Saturday night.
Gutherson registered a point from NRL.com journalist Joel Moss for his performance in the Eels win to move him into outright second place, five points behind Smith.
Manly halfback Dally Cherry-Evans also jumped up the unofficial leaderboard with two points in his side's loss to the Panthers.
NRL.com’s unofficial rankings are based on ratings attributed to players in each game by nrl.com staff following the official Dally M points going behind closed doors after Round 14. The rankings are in no way based on official Dally M points after Round 14, which will not be released until the official announcement of the Dally M winner in Grand Final Week.
