Superstar fullback Israel Folau has won the Matthew Burke Cup, the NSW Waratahs players’ players award.
The Wallabies back polled 99 votes, to finish ahead of captain and openside flanker Michael Hooper (77), backrower Michael Wells (71) and inside centre Kurtley Beale (65).
Votes were cast on a 3-2-1 basis by members of each match day squad after the Waratahs Super Rugby games.
Wells won the Waratahs best forward award and Beale took out the gong for their best back.
The NSW women’s player of the year was veteran back Ash Hewson, who captained her state to the inaugural Super W title.
