Sportswoman of Year
Lydia Ko - slight lead so far, a great LPGA coupled with a Gold sees her uncatchable.
Valerie Adams - Third and probably final Olympic Gold says she is the sentimental favourite.
Luuka Jones - I'm a sucker for a pretty face and no one knew her.
Sportsman of the Year
Tom Walsh - weak field and looks a medalist at Rio.
Kane Williamson - his season on tour with Blackcaps is continuing apace. Hot Favourite.
Beauden Barrett - The Investec tournament will see him elevated as first choice for AB's
Steve Adams - my acknowledgement of his stellar rise but misses a nomination due to not playing for Tall Blacks.
Sportswoman Team of the year.
Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie - Yachting
Sportsman Team of the Year
Blackcaps with an unbeatable 2016 away my favourites if not bested.
Hurricanes Super Rugby Champions
Bond and Murray - Gold and 69th straight win - Probable winners
Coach of the Year
Chris/Boyd and Jon Plumtree - Hurricanes
Mike Hesson - Cricket Blackcaps
Dick Tonks - Have to be Tonks for me, there will be another competition for Canes team and Cricket, but Tonks days are numbered.
Sporting Supreme Award.
What is happening with Bond and Murray is utterly stupendous. Very reminiscent of MacDonald and Ferguson a generation before.
This is a work in progress.
