Premier Sports Championship Player of the Week – Mick Butterfield (Doncaster)
Doncaster full-back Mick Butterfield’s performance against Batley Bulldogs on Sunday played a key role in a crucial win, according to coach Tony Miller.
Miller said: “Mick brought the ball back extremely well every time he carried it.
“That got us onto the front and meant we always had a good start to our set of six.
“He constantly broke the line, was brave in taking the ball on the full regularly, and I just thought he was outstanding.”
