Sophie Devine ended an amazing year with the White Ferns on a high when she was acknowledged as the 4th recipient of the CPA Players’ Award. Devine became the first player to be recognised by her peers as the CPA Players’ Award for a second time, doing so in back to back fashion and continuing what has been a dominant couple of years for one of the world’s most destructive players.
Ross Taylor was recognised by his peers last night as the eighth recipient of The Players’ Cap. NZCPA Life Member and NZC Board member Martin Snedden presented Taylor with The Players’ Cap in front of delighted team mates, partners and team management.
A surprised Taylor was reflective of what The Players’ Cap means to the group stating,
“Mostly I am thankful to the other guys. This group of players have a genuine collective approach and getting this type of thing is really rewarding”.
