Kieran Foran has won New Zealand Rugby Leagues highest honour, being named thier Player of the Year for 2013.


It caps a memorable season for the 23 year old and further cements his position as one of the best players in the game.


Foran has played 15 times for his country since debuting in 2009 and captained the Kiwis for the first time against Australia in April, and also again during the World Cup campaign against Papua New Guinea.


Although, judging for this period didnt include the world cup the reward is thoroughly deserved with Foran only the second recipient of the Steve Watene Memorial Medal, which was first awarded to the Player of the Year (Jeremy Smith) back in 2012.
