The 2021 Clive Churchill Medal will be presented to the best player on the ground in the NRL Grand Final between Melbourne Demons and the Western Bulldogs.

Currently, Penrith co-captain Nathan Cleary heads the betting at $3.50 ahead of Cody Walker, who is the most likely candidate for South Sydney Rabbitohs at $7.00.

Souths lock Cameron Murray has tightened from $15 in to $10 and is the clear third pick in the market ahead of the likes of Adam Reynolds, Damien Cook, Apisai Koroisau, Isaah Yeo and Jarome Luai on the next line.

2021 Clive Churchill Medal Tips

Best Bet - Cody Walker

Cody Walker has scored three tries across the Rabbitohs two finals to get them to this stage, and the veteran is the best value to walk away with the Clive Churchill Medal.

It has been some year for Walker, finished third in Dally M voting and crossing the whitewash 12 times during a productive season. With the Rabbitohs our NRL Grand Final tip, he is the top pick.

The stats are in his favour with nine of last 12 Clive Churchill Medal winners being a halfback, five-eighth or fullback, 13 of last 15 having played State of Origin and eight of last 11 having finished in the top 10 of the Dally M Medal count.

Next Best Bet - Nathan Cleary

If the Panthers are to avoid losing successive Grand Finals, Cleary is going to be the man to get his side over the line.

While captains - Clearly is Penrith's co-captain - don't have a great record in being awarded the Clive Churchill, halfbacks certainly do.

Cleary’s leadership was on full display last week in the Preliminary Final win over Melbourne Storm. A replica of that is going to be needed if the Panthers are to win.

Value Bet - Adam Reynolds

Souths captain Adam Reynolds is bidding for the perfect ending to his time with the Rabbitohs before making Suncorp Stadium his permanent home with the Brisbane Broncos.

Reynolds knows how to win a Grand Final having already claimed two premierships with South Sydney.

He has overcome a groin injury to secure his place in the Souths line-up and now bids for a fairytale ending. He is the value option in the Clive Churchill markets.
