Holmes takes out Members Player of the Year

Cronulla Sharks fullback Valentine Holmes was the Members vote for player of the year in 2018.

Holmes polled over 80% of the votes cast and was a standout choice. Holmes was very honoured to receive the award at the Monty Porter Medal Night and thanked all the Members for their support through what has been a remarkable season.

In accepting the award the 23-year old was especially full of praise for the Members who get out to the games and show their support at Shark Park. The Townsville-born Holmes also paid special tribute to those Members north of the border who always get out to the games when the Sharks head to Gold Coast, Brisbane and Townsville.

The Members Player of the Year wasn’t the only award that Val picked up on the night, he also received the Monty Porter Medal as Pontifex Jewellers Player of the Year, Tommy Bishop Players Player and was given the Iron Man award for playing in all Sharks games in 2018.
