Some very interesting selections - Hore did indeed have a superb year throughout, and moving from the 3rd choice hooker last year straight into 1st choice this year is a big achievement. His award could definitely be argued, but deserving nonetheless.

Weepu for Maori player of the year is pretty succinct, no others in the Maori team really stood out as much as he did.

ANZ player Mackintosh is well deserved - main competition would've been Hosea Gear - maybe the didn't want the Canes to get all the glory? Razz Jokes - Mackintosh had a superb season so well done Whopper!

ABs and Henry for Team and Coach of the year? Honest, I would've said 'Titch' and the Sevens team should've got it - but hey.

Well done all - Rugby can take a break now and we will resume early next year.

IMO most of those awards are fair, i really rated Hore after his Super14 season, and Macintosh after the NPC, good to see forwards get rewarded for all there hardwork.

I agree with Hore getting those 2 awards

Hore had a good season he was very consistent

Good on you Hore hopefully he can back it up next season.
