‘He just plays every game like it's his last. He gets in and does all the dirty work’
- Valentine Holmes on Dane Gagai

An emotional Dane Gagai created history on Wednesday night, winning the Wally Lewis Medal after a brilliant three games for the Queensland Maroons.

Awarded to the player of the series, Gagai became the first winger to win the award, breaking down in tears on stage as he accepted the honour.

It was well deserved, with Gagai clearly the best from either side for the series after running for a series-high 577m and scoring two tries across the three games.
