Vote now: Love Rugby League Readers’ Awards 2020

It’s been a year like no other, and now it’s time to have your say on the stand out highs and lows from 2020.

We’ve seen less rugby league than any other year and we can only hope for a better 2021.

But Super League battled on to its conclusion, including one of the most dramatic finales in history, and there have been many stories – good and bad – worthy of note.

You can send in your nominations by the comment box below and via our Facebook or Twitter pages on social media.

The closing date for nominations is Wednesday 16 December (5pm).

The nominees and winners from each category will then be revealed on a daily basis over the festive period.

We have eight awards to give out – and we will try and present the winner with a limited edition gold Love Rugby League Steeden ball – so let us know your votes on each of the following:

Award categories:

  • Player of the Year
  • Young Player of the Year
  • Story of the Year
  • Coach of the Year
  • Signing of the Year
  • Match of the Year

Nominations can take in to consideration all rugby league, although of course the Championship, League 1, international, women’s and community game were decimated by COVID.

Don’t forget to give us your nominations via the comments below or social media.
