It’s been a great day for both Jai Field and Bevan French.
The duo were both named in the Super League Dream Team this morning with Jai Field at fullback and the 200th player to be included in a Super League Dream Team whilst Super League’s top scorer Bevan French was named on the wing for his second Dream Team appearance.
Things have gotten even better for the duo this evening with Field awarded Wigan’s Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year which is unsurprising considering the stellar season he’s produced seemingly from nowhere after a difficult 2021 campaign marred by injuries.
Meanwhile Bevan French picked up the club’s top try scorer award with an impressive tally of 31 tries made all the more impressive by the fact French missed the start of the season and has had to battle with the free scoring Field and Liam Marshall.
There was an award for youngster Harry Smith who was given the Warriors’ Young Player of the Year Award by Brisbane bound assistant coach Lee Briers.
Briers is one of the many rugby league legends involved at Wigan and two of them were awarded massive accolades tonight as Kris Radlinski and Sean O’Loughlin were inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame with the latter being inducted by Head Coach Matt Peet.

The awards aren’t likely to dry up for the Warriors after this either with the likes of Field and French no doubt contenders for the Man of Steel award.
However, they’ll be more concerned by a sizeable collective award waiting for them at Old Trafford should they win their semi-final on September 16th.
Can they win the double for the second time in Super League history?
