Ross named Members' Player of the Year

Fan favourite Nathan Ross has backed up his NRL Coach's Award with the Members' Player of the Year at the Newcastle Knights' Member and fan appreciation event on Wednesday afternoon.

Having only played six NRL matches before 2016, Ross had a season to remember with 19 appearances and nine tries.

He created plenty of great memories, including that acrobatic four-pointer against the St George Illawarra Dragons and a dominant 80 minute performance against the Paramatta Eels in the centres.

The accolade was determined over the length of the season, with Members voting after each round.
