Wests Tigers playmaker Adam Doueihi has been voted by his teammates as the club’s Players’ Player of the Year for the 2021 NRL season.
After a stellar season, Doueihi took out the award narrowly from Daine Laurie and Alex Twal, who all polled well in voting done by the players.
Doueihi had arguably the best individual season of his young career, as he recorded a personal best nine tries and 69 goals — totalling 174 points — in 20 matches, as well as recording nine line-breaks, 52 tackle-breaks, 22 offloads and 17 try assists.
The local junior also ran for an average 105 metres a game and recorded 309 tackles (avg. 15.5) with an efficiency rate of 83.3 percent.
Cementing his position in the halves towards the backend of the season, Doueihi also featured and performed well in the centres on six occasions in 2021 and was always willing to put the team first.
His season came to an end in Round 23 against Cronulla as he suffered an ACL injury, which will rule him out of the start of the 2022 season — however, he is recovering well following surgery.
Not only did Doueihi star on the field, but he also was nominated for the NRL’s Ken Stephens Medal for his community work.
Doueihi was nominated for the prestigious award, which recognises the efforts of an NRL player who has not only achieved on the field, but also committed time off it to community projects.
Wests Tigers would like to congratulate Adam on his award!
