More than 5,000 votes rolled in for the Central West Rugby Union equivalent and now, with Bathurst Panthers' second straight premiership in the bank, it's time to have your say on makes The People's Choice Group 10 Team of The Year.
The Central Western Daily's resident experts will put together their short-list of nominees for each position, before opening voting up to the public to have the final say.
Of course voting isn't restricted to the players our experts nominate either, the public will be able to enter their own nominations as well and should they receive enough votes they will be included in the final team.
For the multiple-player positions - prop, second row, centre and wing - our experts will nominate eight players and the public will vote on two each, with the two highest-polling players to be named.
For the single-player positions - hooker, lock, halfback, five-eighth and fullback - there will be five nominations, with the highest-polling player to make the final cut.
Voting for coach of the year will also be included, so with a number of player-coaches in Group 10 don't be surprised to see some double ups.

"There's been some incredible individual players in 2019 and we really hope this helps highlight their efforts. It'll be interesting to see who eventually makes the cut."
