Quins top fair play league

Harlequins RL have fought off close competition from Warrington Wolves to top the Frontline Fair Play Index after conceding just six fair play points in their last match of the 2010 season.

Harlequins RL and Warrington Wolves were in joint first position after Round 26 of the Engage Super League and with Quins facing their Frontline Fair Play rivals in the final round of the season, the race for the Frontline Fair Play title was set to go down to the wire. Warrington won the game 36-22 but conceded eight fair play points in the process, handing the London team the Frontline Fair Play honours by a mere two points.

Harlequins RL have had a disappointing Engage Super League campaign, finishing 13th at the end of the season, but they have been regulars at the top of the Frontline Fair Play Index this year and have managed to hold on to top spot.

They can now call themselves the most disciplined club in the 2010 Engage Super League and will collect their £5,000 reward along with the trophy at the Man of Steel awards dinner on Monday September 27.

In the Co-operative Championship, Sheffield Eagles have finished at the top of the Frontline Fair Play Index and can now be rightfully called the best disciplined team in the Co-operative Championship.

The Eagles managed to remain in the Number 1 spot after conceding only five fair play points in their 29-28 victory against Leigh Centurions which was their last game of the regular season.

The South Yorkshire club finished a comfortable nine points clear of nearest rivals Keighley Cougars. They will now be focusing on their impending Championship elimination play-off match against Barrow Raiders on Friday.

Sheffield will collect their £5,000 prize and specially engraved trophy at the Championship awards dinner in Manchester on Tuesday September 21.
