The vote is now open for the December Steffans Player of the Month, with the Saints supporters having the final say on who takes home the prize.
The year of 2016 ended on a high with the important win over Sale, a game in which our first nominee led from the front as the Aviva Man of the Match
The skipper Tom Wood has been excellent since his return from a hugely successful autumn with England. The flanker racked up a monumental 28 tackles in the Aviva Premiership win over the Sharks, epitomising a supreme defensive effort from the Saints.
Another who seems to have impressed the watching Saints faithful is Nic Groom, who continues to excel in his first season at the club. The South African’s razor sharp service was key to an improved attacking edge against Sale, while Groom’s tactical nous and vision has consistently put his side in the right areas of the field.
Last but by no means least is JJ Hanrahan, whose return to action in the centres has caught the eye. Hanrahan’s cutting break and raking pass set up Ace Tuala’s try against Leinster, while his ability to step in at first receiver has also given both Stephen Myler and the team as a whole a new string of options in attack.
While the coaches pick the shortlist, you select the winner! Just vote before 9am on Monday, January 16th.
