Smith looks certainty for Dally M

Melbourne captain Cameron Smith looks an unbeatable frontrunner for this year's Dally M medal after starring in his 350th NRL game in a big 40-6 win over the Sea Eagles at AAMI Park on Sunday afternoon. 

Smith set up four tries in the milestone match to earn three unofficial votes from journalist Joel Moss. 

It was a miraculous recovery for Smith who was injured during Round 20 and looked certain to miss a few matches with a pectoral strain before proving his match fitness and then starring in his side's massive win over Manly. 

The three votes give him a six-point lead in's unofficial Dally M leaderboard ahead of the chasing pack of Daly Cherry-Evans, Gareth Widdop and Paul Gallen. 

Gallen registered three points of his own in the Sharks 26-12 win over the Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium to move into equal second place. 

Eels halfback Corey Norman scored three points as he continues to lead the Eels up the NRL Telstra Premiership ladder towards Parramatta's first finals appearance since 2009, while Paul Vaughan and Luke Keary each registered one point during Round 21.'s unofficial leaderboard:
