NRL: Luck earns top award

Warrior Micheal Luck has tackled his way to the NRL club's player of the year award.

Luck, 27, last night claimed the trophy ahead of prop Sam Rapira and winger Manu Vatuvei.

The competition's top tackler in 2007 and 2008, Luck broke through the four-figure barrier this year by racking up 1053 tackles.

In the 14-14 draw away to Melbourne in April, the loose forward pulled off an NRL record 74 tackles.

The young player of the year award went to 19-year-old prop Russell Packer.
