Rhinos’ Paul Aiton claims the inaugural First Utility Super League Player of the Month award run by the league’s title sponsors, in conjunction with League Weekly.
Aiton impressed the judges and the voting public with a string of impressive and influential performances during a month which saw Leeds Rhinos’ claim top spot in the First Utility Super League. The Papua New Guinean international Hooker averaged 28 tackles a game during March, playing an important role in the Rhinos’ good form last month. His standout game came against Wigan, where his grubber kick set-up Leeds’ opening try as they mounted an impressive comeback against last year’s beaten Grand Finalists.
Leeds Rhinos’ star, Paul Aiton, said: “I’m delighted to be named the First Utility Super League Player of the Month. As a club, March was a really impressive month for us, we topped the table and now we’ve got to kick-on and keep up our good form.
“It’s a real honour to win this award, especially as it’s voted for by the supporters. It was great to meet Becky and we’ll look to keep repaying our loyal fans with strong performances as we enter a crucial period in the First Utility Super League.”
The trophy was presented to Aiton by Leeds Rhinos’ fan Becky Major, who added: “Paul’s one of my favourite players, so I was naturally quite nervous about meeting him! He deserved to be named First Utility Player of the Month and he’s helped us make a good start to the season.”
Becky Major won the opportunity to hand over the award by voting for Paul. To have you say in future awards, and keep up on all things First Utility Super League, head to www.Facebook.com/FirstUtilitySuperLeague.
