first_imgJONNY Lomax has capped an amazing season after he was named Engage Super League Young Player of the Year.The 21-year-old scrum-half has come of age in 2011 and was promoted to England’s Elite Training Squad by England coach Steve McNamara earlier this year.He beat off stiff competition from team-mate Jamie Foster and Josh Charnley of Wigan Warriors to be named as the top youngster at tonight’s Man of Steel awards.Meanwhile, Castleford Tigers stand-off Rangi Chase was crowned 2011 Engage Super League Man of Steel.The 25-year-old collected the sport’s most coveted individual honour at a gala presentation dinner at The Hilton Hotel, Manchester.Chase was an outstanding figure for Castleford throughout 2011 and has been named in England’s train-on on squad for the Gillette Four Nations against New Zealand, Australia and Wales which starts later this month.He secured the award, which is decided by a secret ballot of every Super League player, ahead of Wigan Warriors full-back Sam Tomkins and Saints James Roby.A former Junior Kiwi, Chase joined Castleford from Australian club St George Illawarra in 2009 and last week signed a new contract that will keep him at the Tigers until the end of the 2015 season. He qualifies to play for England under the residency ruling, having lived and worked in the UK for the last three years.Chase is only the second New Zealander to be named Man of Steel and the first since Dean Bell of Wigan was deemed to be the player who made the biggest impact on the 1992 season.Catalan Dragons had double cause for celebration after collecting two awards, including the prestigious 2011 Engage Super League Coach of the Year award which was presented to Trent Robinson.Robinson has overseen a dramatic turnaround in fortunes for the Dragons since his appointment at the end of last season, when the French club finished bottom of the table. Under his stewardship Catalan established themselves as the most improved team of the year in 2011, ending the regular season in sixth place and beating Hull KR in the play-offs before bowing out to Wigan.Their improvement was reflected in activity off the field, which earned Catalan Dragons the title as 2011 Engage Super League Club of the Year, an award which recognises the investment they have made in facilities at Stade Gilbert Brutus, their increased attendance and strong business model.Leeds Rhinos’ President Harry Jepson OBE was presented with the Mike Gregory Spirit of Rugby League Award in recognition of his lifelong involvement in the sport.Hull Kingston Rovers player Jason Netherton was named 2011 Engage Super League Community Champion of the Year in recognition of his unstinting work with youth and schools groups in East Hull throughout 2011.Two former Super League players, Sean Long (Wigan, St Helens and Hull FC) and Rob Purdham (London Broncos and Harlequins) were presented with Outstanding Contribution Awards to mark their long service to the competition.last_img read more

LOUIE McCarthyScarsbrook expects nothing less tha

first_imgLOUIE McCarthy-Scarsbrook expects nothing less than a real nailbiter when Saints take on Hull this Friday.Fifth will play sixth at the KC Stadium and a win for the Red V would realise a home tie at Langtree Park in the playoffs.“We want to finish as high as we can but Hull isn’t an easy place to go,” Louie said. “We’ve had some great contests there over the last few seasons. They are a good team and will have the memory of the Challenge Cup too and so it will be a nailbiter.“Before we played Warrington we had been playing with momentum. But we didn’t turn up and we are disappointed in ourselves and as a team – especially with our first half performance.“We came out a 22-12, still had chances and played well. But the first half did for us. We didn’t help ourselves as you can’t just hand over possession to a side like Warrington.”Tickets remain on sale for the trip to Hull FC from the Ticket Office at Langtree Park, by calling 01744 455 052 or by logging on here.last_img read more
