Nominations now open for the Sports Dad of the Year

Nominations are now open for the 10th anniversary of the Philips Sports Dad of the Year award, where your nomination will help select ten finalists to vote on prior to Father's Day.

Wests Tigers Premiership Winner and Life Member John Skandalis won the honour back in 2009, so let's nominate a Wests Tigers star to become a finalist this year and pick up the award once more!

The Award recognises sporting fathers who make positive impressions in the community, with the winner donating $10,000 to his charity of choice.
