The six nominees for Super League’s Player of the Month have been revealed.
Unsurprisingly George Williams is up for the award.
The Warrington Wolves star has been a cut above in the Man of Steel leader board alongside Hull KR’s Jordan Abdull since the start of the season.
His teammate Paul Vaughan is also included after picking up back to back Warrington Player of the Month awards.
Try scoring sensation Bevan French is the third nominee as the Wigan Warriors flyer has found his best form in the second half of the season.
Catalans Dragons’ Adam Keighran’s great start to life in Super League sees him nominated as is Leeds Rhinos star Cameron Smith despite the club’s indifferent form he has been a brilliant attacker but also is a tackling machine making 64 tackles against Hull KR last week.
The nominees are completed by Leigh Leopards’ Josh Charnley after he spent the month scoring tries for fun.
The first Player of the Month award went to Hull FC’s Text Hoy.
“It is an award that comes from hard work. It goes out to all my teammates at Hull FC, I can’t get this award or play the way I want to without them so it is very humbling to get this award,” he said on Sky Sports.
“Anyone of them could of got this award.
“The Round One game, my debut game, it was crazy and to get the win was special and it was good to get the win.
“That was a good start but we let Castleford Tigers back into it, it was a big win over Leeds Rhinos but on Friday it was a long trip to Catalans and they were better than us in all areas.
“It is only three games but we need to build on that.”
Since those three games things have been tough for Hull and now Hoy is set to miss the derby on Good Friday after a hamstring injury.
