Beau Fermor has been crowned the nib Newcastle Knights' Jersey Flegg Player of the Year.

The 20-year-old backrower was awarded the gong at the Knights' end of season presentation on Wednesday night with Flegg coach Todd Lowrie praising a standout season where he represented Queensland in the 20s Origin.

Lowrie said:


He was really strong for us. He was one of our most consistent performers this season.

It was his first season at the Club after joining from Melbourne and he had a really strong pre-season.

That set him up for a good year and he was rewarded with a bit of a stint in ISP NSW, Queensland under 20s Origin and the leading try scorer in the 20s competition.


For a forward, that's a fair effort considering he's played quote a few games of ISP.

He's a player with a lot going for him. He's a really good hole runner. He's also quite brave when it comes to attacking the line.


He's big, tall, fit and fast. He has the attributes that make good edge backrowers.
