Australia's Rugby League Week (RLW) magazine has, since its inception in 1970, rated all players in each NSWRL/ARL/Super League/NRL club game on their performance. Originally they were scored out of 5, and in 1978 this was changed to a rating out of 10.
At the end of the season all player's week to week ratings are tallied. The five lowest scores are removed from each (to account for representative commitments) and the player with the highest total is announced the RLW Player of the Year.
