Black Ferns halfback Kendra Cocksedge has won the New Zealand Rugby Player of the Year award.
It's the first time in history a woman has won the Kelvin R Tremain Memorial trophy.
Cocksedge, the 47-Test cap veteran, lead Canterbury to their second successive Farah Palmer Cup title and was a standout performer for the Black Ferns in 2018.
She was also named the New Zealand Rugby Women's Player of the Year for the second time (last in 2015), and won the Fiao'o Faamausili Medal for player of the Farah Palmer Cup.
Cocksedge was up against All Blacks Brodie Retallick, Richie Mo'unga and Codie Taylor.
"It means the world and the blood sweat and tears that goes into putting on any type of jersey, when you win awards like this it pays off," says Cocksedge
"It's stepping stones that we are making here and going forward we are going to keep paving the way in the women's game."
"I'm hoping that there is a young me out there somewhere watching and wanting to aspire to want to win an award like this in the future."
