Storm prop Jesse Bromwich has continued to be rewarded for a stellar 2016 season after being named New Zealand’s Player of the Year on Friday night.
The three-time Melbourne Storm Player of the Year and current New Zealand Kiwis Captain accepted the award for the second consecutive year.
“I’m very humbled and honoured to win the award for the second year in a row,” Bromwich said.
“Being the captain for my country, for my family and I, is massive and something I only dreamed of doing.”
Kiwis Coach David Kidwell praised Bromwich’s leadership and form throughout the 2016 season.
“I’ve been lucky in coaching Jesse 2011-2013 – he leads with his actions on the field and the fact that he has won the award again really speaks volumes of how much he has taken his game to another level,” he says.
