Ray French MBE, Willie Horne or Johnny Whiteley MBE – who should the 1895 Cup man of the match award be named after?

The Rugby Football League has invited Our League members to get involved in who the 1895 Cup is named after.

The introduction of a new competition in 2019 presents a rare opportunity to recognise a significant figure from the game’s past and fans can choose between French, Horne or Whiteley.

The Man of Steel award is named after Steve Prescott, the Harry Sunderland Trophy is in memory of an Australian administrator and journalist and the Lance Todd Trophy is named after a New Zealander who had given great service to the British game as a player, coach and radio commentator.

The man of the match at the 1895 Cup final will also be determined by Our League votes on the day.

To cast your vote on who should have their name attached to the 1895 Cup man of the match award, sign up to Our League and visit the ‘polls’ section of the website or app.

Voting will close at 3pm on Friday, August 9.
