Justin Schick took out the top awards on and off the field at the Cobar Rugby Club’s end of season presentations on Saturday night at the Ailsa Fitzsimmons Memorial Clubhouse.
Schick was named this year’s Best and Fairest Player and also collected the award for Clubman of the Year.
The Camels’ Players’ Player of the year was Tom Wall who also was named the team’s Best Back for 2015 and he finished the season as Cobar’s Top Point Scorer.
English import Ryan Hammond was named Best Forward of the season while Zac Finn was chosen as the Camels’ Rookie of the Year.
The season’s Most Improved trophy went to Bryan Strahl.
Coaches awards were collected by Matt Armstrong and Sam Baker.
The title of this year’s ‘Mr Rugby’ Old Boys’ award was earned by Jamie Peters as the team’s best all round player.
Club president Jarrod Marsden said in many ways 2015 had been a positive turnaround year for the Camels both on and off the field.
“On the field whilst the team did not make it to the finals, the one sided scoreboards seen in recent years became a thing of the past.
“The team was competitive in every match and we did not forfeit any games. The player group has expanded and we blooded many new players who will be much better rugby players in 2016,” Marsden said.
“Off the field it was the first time in my involvement at the club where the workload was shared across many people.
“That was reflected in no less than seven individuals receiving votes for Club Person of the Year. We also added Mr Daniel Howard to the life membership of the club. It was one of my proudest (and saddest) moments as president,” Marsden said.
