Jason Taumalolo

Taumalolo and Cronk win Dally M

RNZ reports the North Queensland Cowboys lock and Melbourne Storm half-back headed into the final round of counting level on 26 points, but neither managed to poll, meaning the league's top honour was shared for the second time in three years.

Cameron Smith and Johnathan Thurston followed in equal third on 22 points.

Kiwi's star Taumalolo said he was happy to share the award with Cronk, but was modest when talking about his own outstanding season.

"I don't think I changed compared to last year, just run harder," he said.

Taumalolo charged after egging cars

Taumalolo and the other four players have been charged with two counts of wilful damage and will appear in court next month.

The group were stopped by police for a random breath test on Tuesday night when a person accused them of throwing eggs.

It's claimed that earlier in the evening the men purchased and threw eggs which damaged five vehicles, before driving off.
