Club News Trio short-listed for December Steffans Player of the Month award
The three-man short-list has been announced for the December Steffans Player of the Month award.
December saw the Saints win three out of their four matches, including a stunning victory over Leinster in Dublin, and confirm their place in the Aviva Premiership’s top two going into the New Year.
There were several standout performers during the month, with the job of short-listing three being as tough as ever.
Christian Day has been Mr Consistent this season, with December being the third time that the second row forward has been included in the Steffans Player of the Month short-list. Scorer of three tries and the winner of the man of the match award in the Aviva Premiership win over Bath, Day continues to run the league’s best lineout and has made a significant contribution around the park.
Jamie Elliott’s highlights reel will forever include the 95-metre try he scored at the Aviva Stadium to seal the Saints’ Heineken Cup win over Leinster. The 21-year-old wing also scored against Bath, and in all carried the ball 27 times for 205 metres gained, beating six defenders.
Stephen Myler is leading the Aviva Premiership’s kicking stats, landing 52 out of his 62 attempts for an overall 83.87 percent success rate. His nerves held to win the Aviva Premiership game at London Wasps with the last kick of the match while against Bath his five kicks from six attempts were crucial in keeping the score board ticking over.
But while it is the club which puts the short-list together it is the supporters who decide who takes home a TW Steel watch and the title of Steffans Players of the Month. To make your voice heard just head to www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/steffans before Sunday, January 13th!
