Nathan Hughes shortlisted for Premiership Player of the Month

Nathan Hughes has been shortlisted for the Gallagher Premiership Player of the Month award for January.

January saw plenty of action at both ends of the table with just 13 points separating Exeter Chiefs in first and London Irish in tenth.

It is no surprise therefore in such a competitive League that 11 players are on shortlist for the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Player of the Month for January.

Gallagher Premiership Rugby Player of the Month – January shortlist

  • Will Cliff – Sale Sharks
  • Alex Dombrandt – Harlequins
  • Ben Earl – Saracens
  • George Furbank – Northampton Saints
  • Nathan Hughes – Bristol Bears
  • Taqele Naiyaravoro – Northampton Saints
  • Cobus Reinach – Northampton Saints
  • Rohan Janse van Rensburg – Sale Sharks
  • Jono Ross – Sale Sharks
  • Sam Simmonds – Exeter Chiefs
  • Jack Willis – Wasps

It is becoming harder than ever to pick one star performer each month, which is why this season we are once again opening the voting to the public on the official Premiership Rugby app this season.

The usual panel of ten judges remain - Nick Mullins (BT Sport), Jill Douglas (Broadcaster), Alastair Eykyn (BT Sport), Mick Cleary (The Daily Telegraph), Sarah Mockford (Rugby World), Jonny Fordham (The Sun), Robert Kitson (The Guardian), Chris Jones (BBC 5 Live), David Rogers (Getty Images) and Tom Hamilton (ESPN) with Premiership Rugby Communications Director Paul Morgan acting as chair - but this season the public will act as an 11th judge.

Your vote and those from the other ten judges will then be tallied to reveal the winner each month.

Voting closes at midnight on Thursday so to ensure your favourite player wins, get voting on the official Premiership Rugby app. Access the Polls section in the More menu tab and get voting
