It may be a night to honour the great and the good of the National Rugby League, but it was the NRL WAGs who stole the limelight on the Dally M awards red carpet.
Leading the charge in the glamour stakes was Terry Biviano who wowed in a plunging black gown with a bejewelled neckline at Sydney’s Star Casino on Monday night.
The glamorous wife of former Roosters captain Anthony Minichiello was one of the first to arrive before being joined on the red carpet by former Home And Away star Tessa James and Footy Show star Erin Molan.
