ALBION Park-Oak Flats product Adam Clune has capped off his rookie NRL season by claiming a prestigious piece of St George Illawarra Dragons silverware.
The halfback, who played 15 matches in 2020, was on Sunday named the club's Geoff Selby Memorial Trophy winner.
This is presented to an individual who demonstrates selflessness and commitment throughout his debut season, such characteristics former Dragons prop Selby showcased prior to his tragic death in 1989.
Clune's accolade was on of four announced on Sunday, with the club's top gong, the Paul McGregor Medal, going to skipper Cameron McInnes for the second straight season.
Newcastle Knights-bound back-rower Tyson Frizell finished his Dragons career on a high after winning the Immortals Trophy for the first time.
Frizell was selected by the coaching staff in consideration of the Immortals criteria: demonstrating outstanding commitment and dedication in all aspects of rugby league.
Frizell departs the Red V having won every available performance-based award throughout his eight-year tenure.
Departing Dragons utility Tristan Sailor was the recipient of the Mark Coyne Trophy for career development.
Sailor recently completed a Bachelor of Commerce (majoring in public relations) at the University of Wollongong and has since commenced a Bachelor of Architectural Studies at University of New South Wales.
The Community Involvement Award was not awarded in 2020 due to the COVID-19 enforced protocols preventing any players from participating in any Dragons Community activities, beyond their commitment to the club's local junior blitz and the Dragons' bushfire relief tour of the south coast earlier in the year.
The Red V Members' Player of the Year, as well as the awards pertinent to the Dragons' upcoming NRL women's premiership campaign, will be named at a later date.
