Wigan full-back Bevan French is the Rugby League Writers’ and Broadcasters’ Association player of the year for 2020.
St Helens pair Alex Walmsley and Lachlan Coote were the nearest rivals to French, who is shortlisted for the Steve Prescott Man of Steel award which will be announced on Monday.
RLWBA chairman Trevor Hunt said: “It’s been the darkest of times but Bevan French has typified the spirit of rugby league with some outstanding performances to lift the gloom and spark Wigan to the League Leaders’ Shield and Grand Final, claiming over 70% of the votes to become the RLWBA player of the year.”
