Panthers Captain Kevin Kingston has been nominated for this year’s Harvey Norman Favourite Son Award, as part of Women In League celebrations, and you can vote for him to win!
The prestigious award recognises the contribution of an NRL player at a premiership level, who embodies the values and qualities of a true rugby league ambassador both on and off the field.
It acknowledges a player who acts as a role model for mothers and families; someone who continues to impress on the field, and whose off-field characteristics embody everything we love about rugby league.
Kevin says he’s humbled to be up for such an accolade.
“It means a lot to be nominated for this award and I’m really very honoured. Women are such a huge part of our game now, on and off the field. I have a great support network in my wife and family and my mum and dad, and I don’t think I’d be the person I am today without them.
“It’s really nice to see more and more women taking on roles at footy clubs. We have a lot of female staff working at Panthers and in the NRL, which brings a good balance and a whole new perspective to the game”.
The winner of the Favourite Son Award is a player whose integrity and reputation make the game more appealing to women, and someone who encourages mothers to involve their families in rugby league.
Some of the NRL’s most respected stars have been nominated this year, and the winner will be announced at the Women in League Sydney Lunch, on Wednesday May 14.
