Blake Austin top of Man of Steel standings after Magic Weekend

Warrington’s marquee man Blake Austin is proving his worth as he sits at the top of the Man of Steel leaderboard after 16 rounds.

A member of the panel will watch each Super League game in 2019 and award points to the three outstanding: three points for their chosen standout performer, two points for the runner-up, and one 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 dinner in October.
