Dallin Watene-Zelezniak and Mitchell Barnett bagged nine of the 12 available Dally M points for their efforts in the One New Zealand Warriors’ impressive 24-20 win over the fourth-placed Dolphins on Sunday.

Watene-Zelezniak was handed just his second start at fullback since joining the Warriors when he was called in for the unavailable Taine Tuaupiki while Barnett was captain for the day of a side ravaged by a host of unavailable players.

Watene-Zelezniak was awarded five point for a brilliant display back in his old position. He scored the Warriors’ vital go-ahead try while making a game-high 205 metres from 22 power-packed runs with 52 post contact metres, a line break, five tackle breaks, two off loads and no errors.

Barnett was also superb in his unbroken 73-minute stint with 183 metres from 20 runs, 74 post contact metres, a line break, four tackle breaks, an off load, 24 tackles and no errors.

The remaining three points from the game went to Dolphins centre Herbie Farnworth.

Dally M voting now goes behind closed doors for the rest of the regular season.

Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad and Shaun Johnson are the top-ranked Warriors players with 10 points each.
