Wyong Roos, Warriors and Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs players dominate the 2017 Intrust Super Premiership NSW Team of the Year, announced following the conclusion of the regular season.
While NRL experience is littered throughout the side – headlined by 137-game veteran Mitch Rein – players selected have worked hard to push their case for debuts or regular game time in the NRL Telstra Premiership.
Previous Teams of the Year have included numerous players who have since established successful careers at the highest level.
On the eve of the Intrust Super Premiership NSW Finals Series, the competition’s top seven-placed teams are represented, while minor premiership-winning Wyong Roos coach Rip Taylor is deservedly named Coach of the Year.
