Players recognise Pelite's NRLW performances

Titans star Evania Pelite has been recognised by her peers as one of the best players in the NRLW competition.

The 26-year-old has been a revelation for the Gold Coast, playing at both fullback and centre in the Titans inaugural NRLW season.

Pelite joins Elsie Albert (Dragons), Millie Boyle (Broncos), Emma Tonegato (Dragons) and Botille Vetter-Welsh (Eels) as the players nominated.

These fives players polled the most votes among their peers, and the final winner of the Rugby League Players Association’s prestigious award will be announced during Channel 9’s coverage of the NRLW Grand Final on Sunday, April 10.

Lina Caccamo, the RLPA’s General Manager of Elite Women and International Relations, praised the quality of the five Finalists and the entire NRLW playing group.

“What we have seen from these five players this season has been incredible. The skill, athleticism and commitment they’ve shown is unbelievable,” said Ms Caccamo.

“The overall strength and ability of the playing group has shone through in a year where the season was delayed and two new teams added, yet the entertainment value for fans has gone up.”

“The Players’ Champion is awarded to the most outstanding player each year as voted by peers, and all five of these players would make worthy winners. It’s also pleasing to see a mixture of forwards and backs among the Finalists which shows the quality of skill and strength across the entire NRLW competition right now.”

Along with The Players’ Champion, the RLPA will announce in the lead up to the NRLW Grand Final the Dennis Tutty Award winner, Rookie of the Year, and final 13 players in The Players’ Dream Team for the very first time.
