The first winner of the award this year went to Hull FC fullback Tex Hoy after he helped the club to back to back wins to start the season.
Surprisingly he beat Jordan Abdull to the award despite having nine Man of Steel points out of a possible nine at the time.
The following month Man of Steel leader George Williams picked up the award as he announced his new contract with the Wolves alongside Paul Vaughan.
