Forget the Dally M Medal, the real award the NRL fraternity truly covet is the Clive Churchill Medal.
Awarded to the best player on the field in every NRL Grand Final, the Clive Churchill Medal is the pinnacle of the sport and recognises outstanding performance in the most important game of the year.
There’s a plethora of stars on both sides coming into the 2018 NRL Grand Final, which means picking the Clive Churchill Medal winner won’t be simple, but we’re confident the winner will come from our four selections.

Best 2018 Clive Churchill Medal value in betting
Billy Slater @ $4.00
The ultimate swansong is back on the cards after the NRL judiciary cleared retiring Melbourne Storm great Billy Slater.
Slater scored two tries last week in the Storm’s crushing win over the Sharks and put his body on the line to save another. There’s no doubting the man’s star power and big game prowess. Look for him to go out in style on Sunday.
James Tedesco @ $6.00
The man they call Teddy could be without inspirational playmaker Cooper Cronk this Sunday, which means he will be called upon to shoulder more of the load for the Tricolours.
Tedesco had a quieter than usual game against the Rabbitohs and he hasn’t been stellar in his first ever finals series. This appears to be the ideal situation for Teddy to step up and win the game for his side.
Latrell Mitchell @ $15.00
After missing last week’s preliminary final for the Sydney Roosters through suspension Latrell Mitchell comes back into the side for the Grand Final.
We think Mitchell’s Dally M snub – where he only registered five votes – will sting the playmaker into action, as will the potential absence of star teammate Cooper Cronk.
Look for Mitchell to hit the ground running on Sunday night.
Josh Addo-Carr @ $67.00
Is Addo-Carr really at this price to win the Clive Churchill Medal?
The speedster was electric to start the season but has slightly tailed off after a spectacular State Of Origin campaign, but we’re fully aware of what Addo-Carr is capable of.
With a spot in the Kangaroos team on the line we’re expecting JAC to be at his best on Sunday. And at those odds, it’s hard to look past him.
