Manly Warringah Sea Eagles five-eighth Kieran Foran has been given one of the highest honours after being voted by his peers as the best player at the club.
Foran was rewarded for a remarkable season, named Manly’s Players’ player for the second consecutive year as the Sea Eagles celebrated another successful season at its annual awards night at the International College of Management Sydney.
Front rower Brenton Lawrence took out both the NRL’s Best and Fairest and Clubman of the Year award, capping off an outstanding season which saw him play all bar two matches in the regular season with a knew injury.
Fan favourite Brett Stewart accepted the Gordon Willoughby Medal, voted by Members, while Jesse Sene-Lefao’s contribution off the interchange bench this season saw the 24-year-old named Sea Eagles Rookie of the Year.
Not surprisingly, Jamie Lyon took out Leading Points Scorer while winger Peta Hiku raced to the top of the try-scoring leader board with 17 tries in 24 games.
Jayden Hodges cleaned up the NSW Cup awards, earning both the Players’ Player and Russ Bull Best and Fairest award, capping off a memorable week after making his first start in Sea Eagles colours on Saturday night against the Cowboys.
The NYC’s Players’ Player award went to Jamil Hopoate while Tom Trbojevic was named Best and Fairest.
