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.
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.
