The NRL’s highest individual honours were handed out last night, and yet again our little country town was found to be boxing above it’s weight.
Colin Best won Wing of the Year
Neil Henry won Coach of the Year
Alan Tongue won Lock of the Year
…and, proving that the nicest guys can sometimes finish first, Alan Tongue also won Captain of the Year!
(Details of non-Canberra recipients here)
Congratulations to Neil, Colin and Alan!
Neil and Colin are off to less-green pastures next year, but luckily for us Alan’s staying here in the capital.
If you haven’t heard of Alan Tongue before, you should do a little reading. You couldn’t ask for a tougher, fairer or nicer bloke. Canberra should be very, very proud of him.
