Coyle and Skee are Premier Sports Players of the Week

Hunslet stand-off Thomas Coyle and London Skolars scrum-half Dylan Skee are the latest Premier Sports Players of the Week.

Coyle helped the Hawks secure an important win at York City Knights at the weekend, while Skee was outstanding as the Skolars won comfortably against Hemel Stags.

Every week each coach in the Championship and Championship One is contacted to help compile the Premier Sports awards, the overall winners from which will be announced at the Kingstone Press Championship dinner on Thursday September 26.

Players will still continue to score points towards their respective league’s individual award for the remainder of the regular season and in the build up to that event, the list of points leaders will remain a secret until the winner is crowned on the night.

Premier Sports Championship Player of the Week – Thomas Coyle (Hunslet Hawks)

Hunslet Hawks half-back Thomas Coyle stepped into brother James’s shoes to help guide his side to a Kingstone Press Championship win at York.

James Coyle had to leave the field after less than 10 minutes with an ankle injury, leaving Thomas to switch to scrum-half and play a key role in the 33-30 win.

Hawks coach Barry Eaton said: “James had to go off early and Thomas really stepped up to the plate to become our main leader and organiser.

“James is normally our organiser-in-chief and Thomas plays off the back of that, but he switched roles and had a big game.

“He kicked a great 40-20, scored a fantastic try at a vital time in the first half, got stitched up after taking a late hit and kicked a drop-goal as well.”

Premier Sports Championship One Player of the Week – Dylan Skee (London Skolars)

London scrum-half Dylan Skee was the dominant force as the Skolars won 40-18 at Hemel Stags.

Skee combined well with new half-back partner Mike Worrincy, scoring two tries and kicking six goals as the Skolars claimed their ninth win from 14 league fixtures this season.

He also set up one of Worrincy’s three tries with a well-weighted grubber kick and directed the Skolars’ play with precision as Joe Mbu’s side recorded a fourth successive away win.

Mbu said: “Dylan and Michael Worrincy were both excellent. Dylan’s one of those players that always seems to go well. He’s always pushing in training, making sure other people are doing the right thing as well as himself.”
