Trio up for prize of top youngster

Sam Tomkins, Richie Myler and Kyle Eastmond have been named as the contenders of Super League‘s Young Player of the Year award.

For all three it would be a magnificent way to cap a superb season, although there could be more positive news around the corner with all three tipped to make Tony Smith’s train-on squad for the end-of-season Four Nations.

Warrington-bound Myler impressed at the start of this season, which led to him being called up to the England‘s demolition of France in Paris mid-season.

Tomkins, Wigan’s star stand-off, has had a whirlwind season in comparison. He was only expected to be used as a back-up to the squad, however Tim Smith‘s injury mid-season gave him his opportunity and he has grasped that with both hands.

The talented 20-year-old has scored 12 tries in 22 appearances for the Warriors and has won praise from all areas of the press.

St Helens scrum-half Eastmond is also included after making some eye-catching displays in his 13 appearances, scoring 8 tries.
