Wakeman Named In NSW Cup Team Of The Year

Illawarra Cutters prop Shannon Wakeman has been named in the NSW Cup ‘Team of the Year’ for 2014.

The Dapto Canaries junior was very close to making this side last year but his ability to play in both the front and back rows has edged him onto the interchange this time around.

Wakeman was named the Illawarra Cutters ‘Player of the Year’ recently at the annual Illawarra Cutters Presentation night.
