Five players who will take part in Saturday's Four Nations final between England and Australia are on the six-man shortlist to win the Golden Boot player of the year award.
This year's nominees for the honour, presented by 'Rugby League World' magazine, include three Australians - Greg Inglis, Billy Slater and Cameron Smith, two Englishmen - Gareth Ellis and Kevin Sinfield - and one New Zealander - Fuifui Moimoi.
But absent from the list is Australia's Jarryd Hayne who on Monday was named as the Rugby League International Federation's player of the year, an award that, unlike the older Golden Boot, has only been running for two years
Slater (2008) and Smith (2007) are the last two winners of the Golden Boot and, along with Inglis, tasted Grand Final glory with Melbourne this year and State-of-Origin success with Queensland for the fourth year in a row.
The award ran from 1985 to 1990 before being revived in 1999.
