Warriors' skipper Simon Mannering has been named the NRL club's Player of the Year.

Having received the award in 2008, he becomes only the second dual winner. Steve Price, the player Mannering succeeded as captain, achieved the double in 2005 and 2006.

Mannering, 26, has appeared in each of the club's 25 matches this year and has been on the field longer than any of his teammates, clocking up 1931 minutes.

Former winner Micheal Luck, first-year WarriorFeleti Mateo, hooker Aaron Heremaia, fullback Kevin Locke and five-eighth James Maloney were the other nominees.

Locke took the People's Choice award during a gala dinner in Auckland on Tuesday night.

The Young Player of the Year prize went to Shaun Johnson.

The halfback, who turned 21 on Friday, made his NRL debut in June and has scored six tries, many of them from long range, in his 13 first-grade appearances.

Centre Jerome Ropati was named Club Person of the Year for his community and promotional work since suffering a season-ending knee injury in March.
