The DHL Impact Player Award celebrates the efforts of those players who enable great things to happen. Live performance data is recorded and analysed for each match covering the four award criteria:

Tackles – when a player legally brings an opposition player with the ball to the ground
Offloads – when a player releases a pass whilst one or more of the opposition team are in the process of attempting to tackle them
Carries – when a player carries the ball forwards for a distance of more than 3 metres
Line-breaks – when a player penetrates the opposition defensive line

The DHL Performance Tracker awards one point to a player each time they successfully complete an action (Tackle, Offload, Carry, Line-break). At each tournament, the player with the most points will win the DHL Impact Player Award.

To recognise Impact across the 2016-17 Series, the player with the highest score across their eight best Tournaments will be crowned DHL Impact Player of the Series. The 2015-16 Series saw Fijian superstar Jasa Veremalua take home the trophy.
