Young Knight claims 20s NSWRL Player of the Year

Beau Fermor has been awarded the NSWRL under 20s Player of the Year.

The 20-year-old backrower finished the 2018 Jersey Flegg season as the competitions top try scorer.

Having joined the Knights from Melbourne this year, the hard working Fermor has been a standout performer.


Elite Pathways Development Coach Scott Dureau said the acknowledgement of his season was well deserved.

"He had an outstanding first season at the Club," Dureau said.

"Not only did he excel in the 20s but he played a handful of ISP games and didn't look out of place.

"He's a try scoring talented backrower who makes line breaks and produces try assists.


"He's a hard worker and competitor who trains really well.

"He's just a good kid, grounded and level headed. He's a pleasure to coach."

Last week, Fermor was crowned the nib Newcastle Knights' Jersey Flegg Player of the Year.

He was awarded the gong at the Knights' end of season presentation on Wednesday night.
