Team of the Week: Team of the Year

With the Intrust Super Cup regular season having drawn to a close; the QRL Media team have looked back at some of the more consistent performers from the year who featured prominently in the popular 'Team of the Week' segment and compiled a Team of the Year.


Since Round 7 of the Intrust Super Cup season this year, the QRL Media team have been casting a discerning eye over the performances of the players each round and highlighted the best with selection in the team. 


After tallying up the votes, inclusion in the ‘Team of the Week: Team of the Year' was based upon total number of weekly appearances in the 'Team of the Week' in each position.


The official Intrust Super Cup Team of the Year winners were announced at the QRL Gala Awards alongside the presentation of the Petero Civoniceva Medal for Best and Fairest.

Note: 'Team of the Week' segment took place between Round 7 to Round 24.
