The 2019 Betfred Super League Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel Award will be chosen by a panel consisting of 21 former players and coaches, including seven previous winners of Man of Steel, and boasting a combined total of 46 Championship or Grand Final wins and 41 Challenge Cup winners’ medals.
Wigan Warriors vs London Broncos
May 2, 2019, 7:00pm
A member of the panel will watch each Betfred Super League game and award points to the three outstanding players: three points for their chosen man of the match, two points for the runner-up, and one point for the third-ranked player.
Wigan Warriors 6-4 Castleford Tigers
3 points – Sam Powell
2 points – Sean O’Loughlin
1 point – Liam Watts
Powell’s return to the Wigan side saw him grab the winning try and the hooker was a huge defensive presence for the Warriors too, coming up with 52 tackles in the hard-fought victory.
That total was bettered only by team-mate Willie Isa and opposite number Paul McShane.
London Broncos 10-30 Salford Red Devils
3 points – Jackson Hastings
2 points – Josh Jones
1 point – Luke Yates
Former Manly Sea Eagles half-back Hastings was again at the forefront for Salford on their trip to the capital, grabbing a try and an assist, along with making over 100 metres and three clean breaks.
The 23-year-old put in a good defensive shift too, making 17 tackles.
Hull FC 30-14 Wakefield Trinity
3 points – Albert Kelly
2 points – David Fifita
1 point – Danny Houghton
Half-back Kelly played a pivotal role in helping Hull FC move back up to third in the Super League table, scoring an eye-catching solo try and assisting two others.
His running threat was emphasised by the fact he made six tackle busts and two clean breaks as well.
Leeds Rhinos 28-24 Hull KR
3 points – Richie Myler
2 points – Matt Parcell
1 point – Brad Dwyer
Myler was instrumental as Leeds held on for victory at home to Hull KR, providing the outside backs with plenty of opportunities and putting in a strong defensive display.
He worked well alongside half-back partner Tui Lolohea as well.
St Helens 50-14 Catalans Dragons
3 points – Danny Richardson
2 points – Aaron Smith
1 point – Jack Welsby
Richardson picked up his first Man of Steel points of the year thanks to a performance which included setting up two tries in a comprehensive win for St Helens.
The half-back pressurised the Catalans with some pinpoint kicking and created several opportunities for his team-mates as well.
Warrington Wolves 50-19 Huddersfield Giants
3 points – Blake Austin
2 points – Chris Hill
1 point – Daryl Clark
Austin is now three points clear at the top of the Man of Steel standings after earning top marks in another eye-catching display for Warrington.
Two tries, seven tackle busts, three clean breaks and a total of 105 metres made contributed to the half-back’s sixth three-point performance of 2019.
