Man of Steel: Round 10 Picks
Blake Austin’s time at the top of the Man of Steel table was short-lived, he overtook James Roby last week but this week we have a new leader, Wakefield Trinity star David Fifita and he’s joined by his teammate Danny Brough in the top four.
A member of the panel will watch each Betfred Super League game in 2019 and award points to the three outstanding players: 3 points for their chosen stand-out performer, two points for the runner-up, and 1-point for their third ranked player.
The scores will be made public every week, until Round 22 in mid-July. After that, the poll will be hidden until the Awards Ceremony in October.
