'Pretty happy it came my way'
Vodafone Warriors halfback Mason Lino capped a impressive 2017 by being named the Vodafone ISP Player of the Year at the club's season-closing presentation on Tuesday night.
The 23-year-old marked his season by earning a first-grade recall almost two years after he'd last appeared at NRL level.
Throughout 2017 he was hugely influential for the club's ISP team, helping it to a preliminary final finish (the campaign ending one week short of the grand final with a 12-16 loss to Wyong last Sunday).
Lino spoke to Vodafone Warriors TV about his acknowledgement.
