Jack Wighton Celebrated His Dally M Win With a Feast At McDonald's

Gotta love this from Jack Wighton.

The Canberra Raiders star had an evening to remember last night, edging past Parramatta Eels ace Clint Gutherson and Penrith Panthers star Nathan Cleary to win the prestigious Dally M Medal.

But if you thought the NRL's best player for 2020 was going to treat himself to an expensive meal in a plush, three-star Michelin restaurant then you'd be wrong.

Well, he probably will do that at some point, just not immediately after the ceremony itself.


With the Raiders' NRL season over following their preliminary final defeat to the Melbourne Storm, Wighton is technically no longer under the watchful eye of the club's strict nutrition team.

So to celebrate his Dally M success, the 27-year-old tucked into his favourite fast food joint.

"I slept unreal actually. I just went home with a mate, got a feed and I crashed out," Wighton told Today Show co-host Karl Stefanovic the following morning.

"We went to Maccas. Nothing was open."

The explosive five-eighth then told Stefanovic that he indulged in a "double quarter-pounder" as well as "a couple of McChickens."


While the two were originally discussing Wighton's incredible NRL achievement the night prior, it appeared Channel Nine star Stefanovic was keen to carry on the conversation about Maccas.

He hilariously replied: "Oh yeah. I mean the McChicken are the best."

"Did you get any chicken nuggets? Because they're the best with the Big Mac sauce."

When you've officially been named as the best player in the NRL for the 2020 season, you can celebrate whichever way you like - even if it does involve a "double quarter-pounder" and "a couple of McChickens".
