Tayler Adams from West Harbour last night won the 2017 Ken Catchpole Medal as the most valuable player in the Shute Shield.
The West Harbour five-eighth won the award by seven votes ahead of Paula Balakena from Gordon, who finished the year as the highest try score in the premiership rugby competition.
The Ken Catchpole Medal is awarded after a tally of referee votes given on a 3-2-1 basis from each first grade game during the season.
Recent past winners have included Will Miller (Norths 2016), David Horwitz (Randwick 2015) and Hamish Angus (Warringah 2014).
Adams will have little time to celebrate his award, as he is expected to start for the NSW Country Eagles in the first week of the NRC this weekend.
