Teenage sensation Liam Sutcliffe has been voted the Yorkshire Evening Post Leeds Rhinos Shooting Star 2013.

The 18-year-old topped a poll of Yorkshire Evening Post readers to choose the young player – aged 24 or under – who has made the biggest impact for Rhinos this season.

Other players nominated for the prestigious honour were Alex Foster, Paul McShane, Brad Singleton and Stevie Ward.

Sutcliffe received his prize from YEP reader Graham Poulter at the club’s annual awards dinner, sponsored by Grosvenor Casinos, at Headingley Carnegie last night.

The big winner on the night was Jamie Peacock, inset, who took two top prizes.

Former England captain Peacock was named Rhinos’ player of the year for the second time with Joel Moon runner-up, and Rob Burrow, third, and also won the Cravendale fans’ player of the year honour after polling almost half the 1,300 votes cast.

Peacock – whose father Darryl died on Friday – was also yesterday named in the Super League Dream team for 2013.

Leeds Building Society’s Rhinos try of the year was won by Kallum Watkins for his effort away at Bradford.

Young prospect Alex Foster was second for his touchdown in London and Ryan Hall, third, for his effort at home to Warrington.

Jamie Jones-Buchanan was rewarded for his outstanding work in the community with the Commitment to the Community Award presented by the Leeds Rugby Foundation.

Elliot Minchella was named the Leeds Metropolitan University academy player of the year and academy physiotherapist Richard Partner received an award for his outstanding contribution to the Rhinos academy. Clubman of the year was first team physiotherapist Andy Barker.
