Williams pips Plowicz in Cotterell Medal

Half back Mitch Williams has capped off a dominant season to win his first Cotterell Medal by three votes from club Co-Captain Jason Plowicz.

Williams who also finished runner-up in the association fairest and best award joined the club in 2016 from Kenwick Royals. Mitch’s consistency showed through as he polled 48 out of a possible 65 votes from 13 games this year. Plowicz was equally consistent in polling 45 from 14 games

Mana Yuanjit set the early pace in the count with three best on grounds in the first five rounds before his season was ended by a perforated eardrum in an off the ball incident against Brighton.

From that point it was a two horse race between Williams and Plowicz, with three best on grounds from the final four games sealing the win for Mitch.
