The shortlist is in for the Player of the Month award and you could win prizes from Steffans simply by casting a vote!
While November began in tough circumstances, it ended with a trio of wins, including two from two in the European Rugby Champions Cup.
One man who certainly stood out across the three was Kieran Brookes, named man of the match at Glasgow and part of further outstanding pack efforts against Scarlets and Gloucester. In all the Saints eight won a staggering 18 penalties across the three fixtures, with the tight-head proving the cornerstone.
Alongside him in the front row, Mikey Haywood continues to impress. A Man of the Match performance against Gloucester last weekend marked the culmination of a period where the hooker mislaid just one of 39 lineout throws across three victories.
The back that has made the most of a rock steady set-piece has undoubtedly been Ben Foden. The full back has been in outstanding form, leading the side in both metres made (419) and defenders beaten (21) for the season. His break and assist for Ace Tuala’s second try at Glasgow highlighted a welcome return to the peak of his powers.
The short-list may have been decided, but who wins is up to you, the club’s supporters! To cast your vote just head towww.northamptonsaints.co.uk/steffans before 5pm on Sunday, December 13th. The winning player will take home a TW Steel watch, and everyone who votes will have their name put into the hat to win a £50 voucher for Steffans Northampton, too!
