Law and Coleman are Championships Players of the Week

Keighley front row Scott Law and Hemel Stags playmaker Jy-mel Coleman are the Premier Sports Players of the Week.

Law was the dominant figure in the Cougars’ crucial 28-20 win over Hunslet Hawks, while Coleman was influential in Hemel’s impressive 38-18 victory against Rochdale Hornets.

Both players record the maximum five points towards their respective competition’s Player of the Year award at the end of the season.

Every week each coach in the Championship and Championship One is contacted to help compile the Premier Sports awards.

Premier Sports Championship Player of the Week – Scott Law (Keighley Cougars)

Keighley Cougars prop Scott Law produced two vital spells to help steer his side to a vital 28-20 win over Hunslet Hawks.

Keighley coach Paul March said: “Scott had a massive impact when he came off the bench, getting over for a try with his first touch.

“His involvement throughout the whole game, especially in that heat, was outstanding.

“He then came up with a great play near the end to send Buster (James Feather) over for the crucial try.

Scott Leatherbarrow was given the sponsors’ man of the match, but he dedicated it to Scott straight away and I’m sure all the other players felt the same.”

Premier Sports Championship One Player of the Week – Jy-mel Coleman (Hemel Stags)

On-loan half-back Jy-mel Coleman dominated Hemel Stags‘ 38-18 win over Rochdale, playing two spells at scrum-half either side of a switch to hooker.

Hemel coach Troy Perkins said: “Jy-mel got his hands on the ball a lot, but the best thing was his kicking game; he kept turning Rochdale around, and in that heat it was really effective.

“He worked well with stand-off Chad Sharp too. They both like to take the line on and they’ve both got good kicking games, so we had threats on either side of the field.”

Coleman, who was only playing his second game for Hemel, is on a month-long loan deal from Dewsbury Rams.
