Winner of Award: Matthew Race (sponsored by K3 Cosmetic Dental Studio).
Matthew, who comes from the Stanley Rangers community club, is a stand-off or scrum half who has impressed this season. U19’s Coach Leigh Beattie said “Matthew is a stand off or scrum half who controls the game well. He’s really worked on his defence this season as well. However it is in terms of his attitude that he has made real progress. He can be a bit of a “class clown” this growing maturity has shone through. I think he’s realised what he needs to do in order to progress. His overall performance has lifted 100% and I hope he continues to mature as he’s a real talent.”
