Have your say: Who do you think will win the Steve Prescott Man of Steel award in 2018?

Drew Darbyshire

There are a lot of world class players in the Betfred Super League this year but we want to know who you are tipping to pick up the Steve Prescott Man of Steel award this year.

Here are Betfred’s list of favourites:

8/1 | Ben Barba (St Helens)

It’s no surprise to see Barba at the top of the list. The 28-year-old has been a star in Australia for years, scoring 99 tries in 168 NRL appearances.

The former Dally M Medal winner showed glimpses of what is in his locker for Saints last season but with a full pre-season behind him, he is expected to have a huge year.

10/1 | Luke Gale (Castleford Tigers)

The 29-year-old is the current holder of the Steve Prescott Man of Steel award and is second favourite to retain it this year. If Castleford have another impressive season, then Gale has a good chance to pick up the individual honour again.

Gale played a couple of games for England at the 2017 Rugby League World Cup and was the top goal-kicker in Super League last season, with 129 to his name.

12/1 | George Williams (Wigan Warriors)

The 23-year-old finished the 2017 campaign as the top assist maker in Super League with 29 assists. He has a lot of flare and scored 11 tries as well as 43 goals last term.

16/1 | Matt Parcell (Leeds Rhinos)

The 25-year-old had an excellent debut year in Super League in 2017. Parcell scored 17 tries in 29 games for the Rhinos as well as coming up with 16 assists.

16/1 | Marc Sneyd (Hull FC)

The 26-year-old is one of the best goal-kickers in the world – there is no doubt about that. He kicked 103 goals last year, scored seven tries and grabbed 18 assists.

16/1 | Alex Walmsley (St Helens)

The 27-year-old caught the eyes of a number of NRL clubs with his performances for England at the Word Cup and is expected to have yet another big season at Saints.

He made more metres than anyone else in Super League last season with a staggering 4,256 metres made.

16/1 | James Roby (St Helens)

Roby has been made captain of Saints for the 2018 campaign and he may be 32 years of age, but he is playing better than ever before. He is a very good outside option to have a punt on with Betfred. 

16/1 | Tyrone Roberts (Warrington Wolves)

The 26-year-old will play his first season in Super League in 2018. He provides a lot of options, being able to play at centre, hooker or in the halves. Roberts has the ability to kick goals but he isn’t well-known just yet in the UK.

20/1 | Albert Kelly (Hull FC)

The 26-year-old built up a fantastic partnership with Marc Sneyd at Hull last year. He scored 19 tries in 24 games as well as making 14 assists.

20/1 | Ben Currie (Warrington Wolves)

The 23-year-old was unlucky last year as injuries riddled his season but he enjoyed a fantastic World Cup campaign with England in the autumn. He could be one of the players of the season.
