2016 Paul Bowman Medal for Cowboy of the Year: Jason Taumalolo

Leading the NRL in running metres in 2016, Taumalolo produced a devastating 2016 campaign, playing in all 27 Cowboys games to help his team to the preliminary final.

He comfortably led the voting, finishing on 32 points ahead of four-time Paul Bowman medallist and Cowboys co-captain Johnathan Thurston (22) and forwards leader Matt Scott (17).

Points for the medal are awarded on a 3-2-1 basis by Cowboys’ coaching staff.
