A trio of Northampton Saints backs have been named among the shortlist for Gallagher Premiership Player of the Month for January, and the time has come for you – the supporters – to have your say in who wins the award.
Two Gallagher Premiership Player of the Month awards made their way to Franklin's Gardens last season, as Cobus Reinach and Rory Hutchinson collected the gongs for December and February. And Saints could well be accepting another as George Furbank and Taqele Naiyaravoro join Reinach in the trio of Saints on the shortlist for January.
After nine thrilling rounds of action Northampton Saints sit second in the table and have three players nominated after the clashes with Wasps and London Irish.

It is becoming harder than ever to pick one star performer each month, which is why this season we are once again opening the voting to the public on the official Premiership Rugby app this season.
The usual panel of ten judges remain - Nick Mullins (BT Sport), Jill Douglas (Broadcaster), Alastair Eykyn (BT Sport), Mick Cleary (The Daily Telegraph), Sarah Mockford (Rugby World), Jonny Fordham (The Sun), Robert Kitson (The Guardian), Chris Jones (BBC 5 Live), David Rogers (Getty Images) and Tom Hamilton (ESPN) with Premiership Rugby Communications Director Paul Morgan acting as chair - but this season the public will act as an 11th judge.
Your vote and those from the other ten judges will then be tallied to reveal the winner each month.
Voting closes at midnight on Thursday so to ensure your favourite player wins, get voting on the official Premiership Rugby app. Access the Polls section in the More menu tab and get voting.
