Tom Trbojevic has added another award to his stunning 2021, becoming the second man to sweep the Players' Champion, Dally M and Wally Lewis Medal in the same season.
Trbojevic capped his brilliant year for Manly with another major gong on Sunday, voted the best player of the year by his peers with the Players' Champion award.
The award is determined on player votes with each polling 3-2-1 points, while Trbojevic is the first Sea Eagle to claim the award since it was introduced in 2004.
It ensured Trbojevic has claimed every major prize available to him this year, and also allowed him to join James Tedesco in 2019 in claiming the major treble of awards.
Trbojevic has now won the Dally M player of the year, Dally M fullback of the year, Rugby League Players Association MVP and Wally Lewis Medal for best in State of Origin.
He last week claimed the Roy Bull Medal for Manly's best and fairest, while also being named the club's players' player and breaking the record for the most tries in a year by a Sea Eagle.
The 25-year-old will be favourite to win the Brad Fittler Medal for the best NSW player of 2021.
Trbojevic was also named fullback in the RLPA's dream team, with the only difference from the Dally M side of the year being Joey Manu and Angus Crichton picked over Matt Burton and Viliame Kikau.
The long list of accolades comes after Trbojevic played 18 games across the regular season and finals, scoring 28 tries and setting up 31.
Meanwhile under-fire Warriors fullback Reece Walsh was named rookie of the year, a week after being arrested and being investigated for drug offences.
Walsh was a breakout star at the Warriors after moving from Brisbane, but found himself in trouble when he failed to move on from a Gold Coast night spot last week.
The 19-year-old then later admitted he will face a charge of possession of a prohibited substance in court this month.
He was ineligible for the Dally M rookie of the year award the following night after being suspended twice during the season, but claimed the RLPA prize ahead of Sam Walker.
