2018 Dally M Player Awards

26th Sep 2018

Damien Cook - Dally M - Hooker of the Year

The South Sydney Rabbitohs would like to congratulate hooker Damien Cook on winning Dally M Hooker of the Year. Cook has been awarded the illustrious medal for his fantastic performances for both Club and State where the dummy half played an integral role in the Rabbitohs run to the Preliminary Final and the NSW Blues State of Origin Series win. Cook is the first Rabbitohs player to take home a Dally M award since Sam Burgess, who was named Lock of the Year in 2014. Cook has gone to another level this year, after being awarded the starting number nine role by Head Coach Anthony Seibold. Fitting perfectly into Seibold's expansive attacking style, Cook has gone on to score four tries, provide seven try assists, nine line break assists, make over 1000 tackles and run an average 104 metres per game. The South Sydney Rabbitohs Football Club would once again like to congratulate Damien, on his outstanding achievements.

Anthony Seibold - Coach of the Year

South Sydney Rabbitohs Head Coach Anthony Seibold has taken out the Dally M Coach of the Year award. After an incredible campaign in his first season at the helm, Seibold took the Red and Green to the Club's first Preliminary Final since 2014 and its first Finals series since 2015. Seibold becomes the second Rabbitohs' Head Coach to win the award after former Head Coach and player, George Piggins, won the award in 1989. Developing an attacking style, which saw the Rabbitohs go on a nine-match winning streak through the middle of the season, secure the most points and score the most tries, Seibold was well deserving of Rugby League's highest honour for a Head Coach. While it was his first year in charge, his previous appointments covered a wide array of clubs, both as a player and an assistant. The South Sydney Rabbitohs Football Club would like to congratulate Head Coach Anthony Seibold on his outstanding achievement.
