Super Rugby

Brumbies prop Allan Alaalatoa has taken out the club's top gong after a stellar Super Rugby season.

Alaalatoa was a standout for the club and among the best tighthead props in Super Rugby, form noticed by his teammates in the peer-voted award.

Bullocking Brumbies women's no. 8 Tayla Stanford was named the Super W Player of the Year after a breakout year.

Stanford's Test hopes were cruelly ended by a knee injury but the backrower was clearly the best for the ACT in an impressive 2019 season.

ACT skipper Christian Lealiifano took out a swathe of gongs, winning his namesake Spirit of Rugby Award and the Supporter's Choice men's award.

Tevita Kuridrani was named best back while lock Rory Arnold was named best forward after a career-best Super Rugby season.

Brumbies back Andy Muirhead was recognised for his community work with the Canberra Milk Community Engagement award.

In Super W, backrower Georgia O'Neill took out the Supporter's Choice Award while Brooke Gilroy was named most outstanding young player.

Brumbies men's backrower Jahrome Brown's meteoric rise was capped off with the Shawn Mackay most outstanding young talent award.
