It was as close of a margin as you can get but Brendan Daly from SFGG is our Men's Club Player of the Year after edging out Alatasi Tupou from Mystic River 42% to 41% in our fan vote. Armandt Peens from the Glendale Raptors came in third with 17%.
As we noted in our voting description, Daly may not wow you with flashy tries and as a lock he can often be overlooked doing the dirty work. However, when you want a leader that leads by example then Daly is your guy. That is not to say he isn't a fabulous rugby player. He is one of the better players in the country but it's his work rate that pushed SFGG to another PRP final. Now, he's rewarded by fans with a TIAR Award.
