Panthers co-captains Wayde Egan and Reed Izzard have been named in the 2017 Holden Cup Team of the Year.

The duo have played leading roles as the Panthers NYC side defied the odds to finish the regular season in second spot on the ladder.

Egan has scored 16 tries and provided 14 try assists in 18 games, while Izzard has run for more than 2600m and made over 700 tackles in his 23 appearances.

“This year’s Team of the Year is once again filled with some exciting talent and I can’t wait to see these players progress,” Mr Canavan said.
