Jake bags top coach award
Sydney - According to the Sydney Morning Herald's website
, Jake White has been named Coach of the Year at Australia's Super Rugby awards, after guiding the Brumbies to the final of the competition for the first time in nine years.
The Brumbies ultimately fell short in the final against the defending champion Chiefs, going down 27-22
Some will see it as a consolation prize for White, who was snubbed for the Wallabies head coaching role in favour of Australian coach Ewen McKenzie earlier this year, following the resignation of Robbie Deans.
Waratahs openside flank Michael Hooper was named Player of the Year, beating fellow nominees, Brumbies George Smith, Will Genia of the Reds and James O'Connor from the Force to win the award.
Waratahs fullback Israel Folau won the Rookie of the Year award, while Reds wing Rod Davies bagged the Try of the Year for his brilliant effort against the Sharks in Round 10.
New Zealand referee Steve Walsh won Referee of the Year.
