Matthew Duncan and Warrick Nicolson have tallied the results and it appears no-one could match JT's hot form down the stretch as he almost single-handedly carried the Cowboys into the Finals.
To find out who he beat to be only the 4th ever recipient of the Award - have a listen!
We also release the Team of the Year, Each Club's Player of the Year and the 2013 Rookie of the Year. Plus our #NRLTweetPOTY special categories - NRL Gamebreaker (for most Man of the Match Awards) and Mr Consistency (for most games polled in).
Past winners are: 2010 - Todd Carney, Roosters; 2011 - Benji Marshall, Tigers; 2012 - Ben Barba, Bulldogs.
CONGRATS JT - now go win that Dally M!
We will have a full feature on the Voting on www.wdnicolson.com later in the week.
