Brough scoops Rugby League Writer’s gong

Huddersfield half-back Danny Brough has been named as the Rugby League Writers’ Association player of the year.

Brough, 30, helped lead the Giants to their first top of the table finish for 81 years, and is also one of three nominees for the Super League Man of Steel.

He will go up against Leeds forward Jamie Peacock and Wigan’s Sean O’Loughlin for that prize, with the winner set to be announced at an awards dinner on Monday.

RLWA chairman Trevor Hunt said: “Danny Brough has been one of the top players in Super League for a number of years but this year he has been truly outstanding.

“He has made no little contribution to Huddersfield’s first league success for 81 years and that no doubt got him the edge over Jamie Peacock, who has also enjoyed a tremendous season.”

Brough was also named in the 2013 Super League Dream Team.
