Player of the Year – Travis Dixon
Travis has been amazingly consistent throughout the season, terrorizing the opposition with his breakthrough runs. That he was also a contender for Cru Iron Man shows his dedication to the team and we can only hope he continues his new policy of not drinking during games.
- Position: Fly-half
- Points scored: 126
Cru Iron Man – Alex Diaz
Alex showed an amazing ability to be there throughout the season. Fortunately for the CRU as he was a carrying member on and off the field. Unfortunately for the opposition as he improved his tackling and rucking to levels where it hurt also people who just watched.
- Position: Lock
- Weight: Light enough to be flung 3m in the air during lineouts.
Most Improved Player of the Year – Sean Whaley
Sean Whaley started playing rugby when he joined the US Navy (along with some other dubious habits picked up during the same period). He could not pass, he could not run, he could not tackle say those who witnessed his first effort on the field, but has evolved to one of the Cru’s best allround players with an almost eerie sense of position. Sean took the honors ahead of strong competition as many of his team mates have come leaps and bounds this year.
- Position: Inside Center
- Evolution: Ubiquitous
Captain’s Award – Sean Gibson
‘Gibbo’ has been with the team so long that few can remember a time when he wasn’t there. A versatile player who has covered almost every position at one point or another. During the 2012/-13 Season Sean turned back the clock and played some of the best rugby of his career.
- Position: Flanker
- Would be profession: Stand-in for Bruce Willis in Die Hard
Club Man of the Year – Stewart Henwood
Although on the sidelines ‘Tooley’ has played a pivotal role for the team this season. His reinstatement of matches every weekend, proper post-game pissups and songs with dubious lyrics did wonders for team morale.
- Position: Team Manager, Flanker
- Occupation: Teacher, of anything… to anyone who will listen.
