Rampaging forward Jason Taumalolo has topped off another stellar NRL season by winning North Queensland's Paul Bowman Medal for the second time.

The 24-year-old, who this week shocked rugby league circles by defecting to Tonga from New Zealand for the upcoming World Cup, became the first forward to run for 5000m in a season in 2017.

"Jason has again had a huge year," Cowboys general manager of football Peter Parr said.

"With a season-ending injury to our co-captain Matt Scott, Jason stepped up enormously, leading by example week-in, week-out."

Taumalolo was also joint winner of the players' player award, alongside emerging halfback Michael Morgan.

Morgan also won the coach's award, which replaced the Most Improved Cowboy gong.
