SUNDAY afternoon saw the Kingfishers senior men's team end the season on a high with a presentation event at the RS Willis Park club house.

Coach Mick Harkin said it was a low-key presentation with about 40 players and families in attendance.

"Jayden Fairhead took out the 2021 coaches award," Harkin said.

"He didn't miss a single training session and played just about every position in the forwards and had a few games on the wing too.

"He's one of the best defenders in the team, and consistently plays 20 kilograms over his weight, bringing down players at least twice his size."

Harkin said the best forward for the year was Keiran 'caveman' Price-Moss.

"This was a well deserved from a front rower that never took a backwards step, always giving the team momentum," he said.

"He defended strongly in the centre of the ruck against the usually much bigger opposition."

The best back went to another young Kingfisher junior coming through the ranks who Harkin said had played an outstanding game throughout the entire season.

"Arran Davies was a threat every time he ran the ball and ended the season as the leading try scorer for the Kingfishers," he said.

"The final award for the afternoon was the 'players player'.

"This went to the captain Nick Harkin, who lead the team by example with his brilliant kicking game.

"His solid defence and attack set up many tries for his teammates throughout the year and scoring seven of his own.

"The Kingfishers would like to thank our sponsors and the supporters that always attended the games over yet another strange year for football."

Beaudesert bowed out of the finals race last week after going down 46-16 to Souths Inala.

That came after losses to Mustangs Brothers and Logan Hawks.

The side finished third on the ladder at the end of the regular season, just eight points behind leaders Easts Mount Gravatt.

They won 15 games and lost just five.

Harkin said last week he was happy with the season despite disappointing finals results.
