EVANS River Rugby held its annual awards at The Bowlo on Saturday, October 20 in a celebration of the year that was.

Recipients on the evening were Best Forward Derrick Duigan, Best Back Rob Swinton, Coach's Award Ryan Duncan, Club Person of the Year Ian Stevenson, Rookie of the Year Max Pye and Player's Player Anthony Barchard.

There were also four players who achieved milestones for the year, 50-games recipients Ben Fisher and Justin Skaines, and 100-game veterans Leslie Lewis Hughes and Ben Fisher.

However, this was not the only award for Ben on the night. He also picked up the Best and Fairest and also the Rob Te Oke Award, which is voted for by his peers.

A very humble winner thanked not only the players but all who played a role in making the season what it was. Ben is a co-founder of the club as well as a foundation player and this year's captain.

He led the team with grit and determination, and the fruits of his labour were visible in the awards he received.

The opinion of many was that this year was one of his best and to take home two of the most prestigious awards is evidence.

The Killer Whales congratulate Ben and all of this year's recipients. Also, a special thank you to Penny Colley for hard work on the day and we hope to see everyone back for our 10th season.
