PARKES have been a dominant force in the Blowes Clothing Cup first grade competition in recent years.
Yet, they may not have a single player named in the 2013 People’s Choice Blowes Clothing Cup Team of the Year.
The Boars lifted the premiership trophy in 2011, and this year they finished the regular season second.
But with voting closing in the Team of the Year at midday on Friday, it looks like they will miss out.
We’ve already had over 7000 votes for the Team of the Year, but yours can still make a difference.
There are 46 players hoping you help them to one of the 15 places available.
Some positions are hotly contested and a couple of votes could decide who earns a place in the team and who misses out.
One of the tightest contests is for the hooker’s position, where it has become a two-horse race.
Orange City’s Josh Tremain is leading with 46.6 per cent of the vote, but Dubbo Kangaroos’ Peter Nau has been edging closer and is on 40.2.
In the second row, Toby Key from CSU Bathurst looks to have secured a spot with 43.3 per cent of the vote, but Orange City’s Chris Barrett (26.9), Cowra’s Chris Miller (24.9) and Narromine’s Lachie McCutcheon (22.5) are fighting it out for the other position.
CSU Bathurst players have dominated voting in each position they have been a finalist, so you can probably expect to see James Duff (half-back), Hugh Medway (No.8) and Jack Garrad (fullback) to feature in the final team.
There could be an unlikely centre pairing with Narromine’s Luke Brown looking safe on 52.6 per cent of the votes and Orange Emus’ Tim Alison next best with 18.6.
The wingers may be an all-Orange City affair with Sione “Junior” Lafo’ou (48.3) and Sam Powell (38.8) leading the voting.
If you want to have your say, you need to vote before midday today.
The team you have voted in will be revealed on Saturday.
