Cheyne Whitelaw Claims NYC Best & Fairest Award
Rabbitohs Holden Cup forward Cheyne Whitelaw has won the Rabbitohs’ NYC Best and Fairest Award, for the 2014 season.
Whitelaw enjoyed a dominant 2014 season playing predominantly at the back of the Rabbitohs’ scrum, and topping not only his team but the competition in many key statistics.
In his 25 appearances in season 2014, Whitelaw made 392 runs for a total of 3242 metres – the highest in the team by 607 metres (an average of 130 per game) – while also topping the side in tackles, with 1113 to his name, seven of which were try-savers.
He also was not afraid to score points, touching down for eight tries during the course of the season, many of which displayed his power by barging over from close-range.
The NYC Best and Fairest award was presented to Cheyne at the Red and Green Ball by Rabbitohs NYC Coach, Ben Gardiner.
Congratulations to Cheyne on winning the NYC Player of the Year Award for season 2013.
