Hastings and Hill take top and Men and Womens Super League awards

Posted by

Salford Red Devils halfback Jackson Hastings and Leeds Rhinos halfback Courtney Hill have won the Man and Woman of Steel respectively.

Hastings picked up the award after playing a major part in Salford’s incredible rise this season, which has seen them go from battling for their Super League lives, to the Grand Final at Old Trafford.

The Aussie halfback won a double after being voted the Fans Entertainer of the Year. This was awarded by fans nominated from each of the 12 clubs.

Hill has played her part in getting Leeds to the Womens Grand Final, and also scored the winning try as they lifted the Challenge Cup title for the second straight year.

Away from the main awards, league leaders St Helens picked up another two as Justin Holbrook won Coach of the Year and Matty Lees won Young Player of the Year.

Elsewhere, Tommy Makinson of St Helens was the top try scorer and Hull FC’s Danny Houghton was top tackler.

The Warrington Wolves Foundation won Club Foundation of the Year for their work in Disability Rugby League. They have played in Australia and won the first PDRL Grand Final a few weeks ago in Selby.

Finally, the retiring Jamie Jones-Buchanan received the Spirit of League award.
