Darren's a dazzler

STYLISH utility player Darren Blackett has found some compensation from an otherwise dismal season by being named Player of the Year at the Coffs Harbour Comets rugby league club presentation night.

While the Comets first grade team missed the semi-finals the gun centre was in sparkling personal form all year, also adding the title of 'best back' to his haul from 2007.

Nowan Williams was named 'Rookie of the Year' in his first season of first grade football while Ashley Trengove and Shaun Bamford made celebrating their reserve grade victory over the Port Macquarie Sharks even sweeter by being named joint-winners of the 'Player of the Finals Series' Award.
