Sydney Roosters captain Boyd Cordner from Old Bar has been named winner of the prestigious Jack Gibson Medal at the Sydney Roosters Rugby League Club’s awards night.

This is the second time Cordner has claimed the club’s most prized award, with the 25-year-old previously receiving the medal in 2015.

Awarded to the player of the year, the Jack Gibson Medal was voted for at the conclusion of every game by the Roosters NRL team and coach, with votes tallied across the season.

John Gibson, son of the late Jack Gibson, presented Cordner with the medal.

Taree’s Latrell Mitchell was the recipient of the Roosters Our Community Award for his efforts throughout the community and work as an ambassador for the St Vincent’s Heart Health Program.

Mitchell is also the Roosters finalist for the NRL’s Ken Stephen Medal.

He also took home the Steggles Try of the Year Award for his memorable four-pointer in the Roosters win against the Brisbane Broncos in week one of the finals series.

Yet another Group Three product, Jake Hazard won the Chris Sykes Award for junior representative player of the year.
