Points are calculated from every action made by players with every involvement given a points value depending on the importance and frequency of the action. Mistakes such as handling errors or penalties conceded would incur negative values.
At the end of a match, all the players’ actions will be added together to give a game score. The 13 individuals with the highest scores in each position on the field of play will earn inclusion in the Frontline Index Team of the Round with the highest scoring individual earning the Frontline Index Player of the Round title.
The player with the single most outstanding performance during the regular season will win the Frontline Index and be presented with a £1,000 cheque at the 2011 Engage Super League Man of Steel dinner. Castleford Tigers player Rangi Chase is still in the lead for the prize at the end of the season with the impressive 1,049 points total in Round 9.
