Cooper Cronk is the 2013 Dally M Player Of The Year after a very consistent season for the Melbourne Storm.
The awards started off fairly slowly but things picked up once Russell Crowe stepped up to the microphone and started to had a bit to the show.
Cameron Smith and Greg Inglis won a heap of silverware but this was a night for Cooper Cronk, a worth recipient of the Dally M Award.
Here is a list of the nights award winners:
