MELBOURNE Storms player Sisa Waqa was awarded the Petero Civoniceva Medal during the Australian Fijian Rugby League (AFRL) awards night on Saturday.

The event held in Sydney, Australia recognised the effort of Fijian players plying their trade in Australia.

The Petero Civoniceva Medal is awarded to the AFRL Player of the Year.

Waqa was instrumental for the Storms in the National Rugby League competition and the Vodafone Fiji Bati in the Rugby League World Cup competition last year.

He also featured strongly in the inaugural Auckland NRL Nines competition last month.

Rugby league legend and retired Fiji Bati captain Civoniceva, who also attended the awards night, congratulated Waqa on his win.

"Congrats to Waqa Sisa on winning PetCivo Medal at last night's AFRL awards, Mounties RLFC. Awesome season for the Storm and Fiji Bati RL," Civoniceva wrote on his Twitter page.
