Salford’s Paul Rowley and St Helens boss Kristian Woolf have also been nominated.

St Helens claimed the League Leaders’ Shield this season for the first time since 2019.

Meanwhile, Rowley’s Salford have impressed so far this campaign and claimed a sixth placed finish for the play-offs. They face Huddersfield on Saturday in the eliminators.

It is also his first year in charge of the AJ Bell Stadium side. The Red Devils finished the regular season with the most points scored with 700. That included 26 tries from winger Ken Sio.
