Club News Clark named Steffans Player of the Month in March
Calum Clark continues the forwards’ dominance of the Steffans Player of the Month awards this season by winning the public vote in March.
The flanker, who captained England Saxons in their clashes against Scotland ‘A’ and the Irish Wolfhounds in January and March, earned over 50 percent of the vote, beating off competition from Kahn Fotuali’i and George Pisi to take home a TW Steel watch.
Clark is rapidly approaching a century of appearances in the Saints’ black, green and gold, and will pass that milestone if selected for Sunday’s Aviva Premiership home game against London Irish.
His performances in March were typical of his season-long consistency, carrying the ball regularly, making his tackles and turnovers, and winning the man of the match award in the Aviva Premiership win over Gloucester.
Meanwhile the Saints’ performance interns, Ben Rhodes and Dan Taylor, have been named as the joint winners of the TW Steel Clubman of the Month award in recognition of their hard work and dedication behind the scenes throughout the year.
“Ben and Dan deserve recognition for their contribution throughout the season,” said lead strength and conditioning coach Marc Finney. “Being an intern is always hard, with long hours and some unenviable tasks, but Ben and Dan have had a positive attitude since they arrived and have been invaluable members of the performance department.”
The club also announced that Dave Collins is the recipient of a £50 voucher for use at Steffans Northampton after having had his name drawn out of the hat from the hundreds of supporters who cast their votes.
