Fermor in mix to be Paul Broughton Medal bolter after consistent season

The 2022 season has certainly been Beau Fermor's year with the talented Titans forward proving hard work reaps plenty of rewards.

Earning Prime Minister's XIII selection late last week to line up in the green and gold against Papua New Guinea on Sunday, the achievement tops off a huge year for the Gold Coast back-rower, who also got a taste of State of Origin as a member of Queensland's extended squad earlier this year.

Playing all but one game (missing due to COVID), the reliable 23-year-old has been one of the most consistent stars for the club this season, which has put him into the final four for the Paul Broughton Medal to be announced on Thursday.

Will the big season give Fermor his maiden top honour in his third year with the Titans?

See below for's review of his season.

The top try scorer for the Titans this season, Fermor was a consistent finder of the white stripe throughout 2022 and his form has put him in the top five point-scoring back-rowers of the competition.

A powerful ball runner with plenty of speed and acceleration, the Dalby Devils junior perfected the art of being able to run a line and find holes in plenty of defensive lines.

Making history at the end of the year as the first Gold Coast forward in club history to score a try in five consecutive appearances, his combination with AJ Brimson on the left edge became a feared attacking side for the opposition with the duo's power and speed and is expected to continue into the new season ahead.

Best game

Round 11 v Sharks

Honing in on Fermor's best game of the season was a tough task given his consistent performances across the entire season, but a game he really made a name for himself in was against the Cronulla Sharks at home, earning three Paul Broughton Medal points that afternoon. 

Whilst the Titans weren't able to secure the two competition points in the wet and unfavourable conditions at Cbus Super Stadium, Fermor was among the Titans' best - running for 159 metres (72 post-contact) and topping the tackle count with 34 efforts.

The performance also put the Coast edge forward on the Origin radar, with the 23-year-old called up into the Queensland Maroons extended squad for Game II only three weeks later.
