The 2021 Woman of Steel shortlist has been announced.
St Helens and York each have two contenders to become rugby league’s third Woman of Steel when the award is presented alongside the Steve Prescott Man of Steel on Sky Sports on October 4.
Saints captain Jodie Cunningham is joined by her team-mate and England captain Emily Rudge on the shortlist.
York duo Rhiannion Marshall and Sinead Peach have been nominated for the award along with Leeds centre Fran Goldthorpe.
The award was introduced in 2018, with Castleford’s Georgia Roche the first winner, followed by Leeds captain Courtney Winfield-Hill in 2019.
