RUGBY LEAGUE: THE Border Bushrangers have celebrated the end of their season at the BRL awards presentation and 20th anniversary dinner.
Awards were handed out to the players for their continued efforts throughout the season.
Awards were presented to:
Border Bushrangers U18s coaches award: Braden Carmody from the Stanthorpe Gremlins.
Border Bushrangers coach Peter Brannigan said Carmody was the most deserving of the award.
"He's a bloke every coach wants on the field, just one of the best defensive players I've seen, he really deserved it," he said.
Most improved: Michael Marini from the Stanthorpe Gremlins.
Rookie of the Year: Michael Parnell from the Stanthorpe Gremlins.
Zac Willis from the Glen Innes Magpies.
Best back: Jacob Adams from the Stanthorpe Gremlins.
Best and fairest: Declan Spencer from the Texas Terriers.
Brannigan said he was proud of all the boys for their efforts.
"As far as the awards go, it was really good to see the boys getting recognised for what they did through the year," Brannigan said.
All of the players who won awards for their season are eligible to play on the team again next year.
"It would be good to see the boys back next year."
As this was the first season of the team, Brannigan said he was impressed by the way the boys had played and thanked the BRL for its support.
"I was just really happy that the BRL were able to gift the boys their jerseys for their first season," he said.
"I felt really proud of the way they played all year, especially for the first year."
