Tonight the club crowned captain Cameron Smith as Melbourne Storm's Player of the Year during a ceremony held at Twin Waters convention centre, where players and coaching staff celebrated a premiership winning 2020 season.

It marked the eighth time Smith has won the club’s premier award, with his first win 15 years ago.

Cam takes out his 8th POTYA

His last win was in 2017, another Storm premiership season.

In 19 appearances this year he set up 15 tries, scored three of his own, kicked 86 goals and steered our side to glory.

Isaac Lumelume was awarded the Cooper Cronk Feeder Player of the Year award, recognising his efforts on the training track which also earned him his NRL debut in round 16.

The Fijian switched from Cronulla to Storm midway through 2019 and played on the wing in three first-grade games this year.

Tino Fa'asuamaleaui was in outstanding form this season and was a deserving winner of the Billy Slater Rookie of the Year award.

In 22 appearances, Tino scored seven tries and averaged 125 metres.

Fearless centre Justin Olam was named the club's Most Improved player in 2020, following a breakout season last year.

He scored 11 tries in 21 games and notched up 52 tackle busts and seven line breaks.

Performance Coach Daniel Di Pasqua received the revered Michael Moore Club Person of the Year trophy.

In a stellar year, Clive Churchill medallist Ryan Papenhuyzen collected another three accolades. He was named Suzuki Members Player of the Year, Best Back of the Year and won the Best Try award.
