Reason for nomination this round:
“Cam Edwards is an exciting talent and has a big future in the game. Cam has elite fitness levels as well as a high kicking efficiency, and his ability to win one on one contests is a big attribute that he possesses. He has been a regular top up for the Giants NEAFL and has represented NSW RAMS and played in all academy series games last season, so it is great to see him represent East Coast in Premier League. We are delighted to be able to play him as he has experienced a big preseason and we are keen to play him at the highest level in Sydney and be a part of his bright future.
Coach quote on Performance:
“Cam had another fantastic game on the weekend vs Syd Uni. His efforts and decision making went a long way to a great 3-point win. His ability to win one on one contests and enforce forward pressure resulted in a key game for the team. His decision making was at an elite level. Already a leader in an established team.”
