Competition organisers are ramping up interest by creating Dally M-style player-of-the-year awards.

Coaches have voted their top opposition players from the rounds so far, and News Corp journalists will join the voting from the next round, with the top player getting 3 points, the second best 2 and the next best a single point.

The standings after 2 rounds will be revealed tomorrow night on The School Footy Show, News Corp's weekly highlights show of Langer/Payne action.

The show will be up on this website about 7pm on Monday.

It will also be announced on the show who the two trophies, which will be presented each year, will be named after.
