Goldsmiths award voting now open

Figure image
The voting is now open for the Goldsmiths Player of the Month.

Miles Benjamin, Jamie Gibson and Sebastian de Chaves are on the three-man shortlist for the November award.
Benjamin has found some of his best Tigers form with three tries in his last three games, including a brace in the bonus-point LV= Cup win against Sale Sharks. The winger made 13 carries against the Sharks, including three line breaks to follow up his eight carries and a try in the LV= Cup game away to London Irish.
Back rower Gibson, who has played at 6 and 7 this month, scored his first try of the season against the Barbarians, a game in which he made 10 tackles and cleaned out at 21 rucks. His lineout work has also been of the highest standard, stealing three against the Scarlets and securing four of his own team’s throws against Ulster.
De Chaves has impressed in three full 80 minutes appearances inside a week for Leicester Tigers. The 24-year-old lock played the every minute of the games against London Irish and Sale Sharks in the LV= Cup, and against the Barbarians and is now one appearance away from earning his 20 game club tie.
They will be aiming to follow Julian Salvi and Graham Kitchener, the winners of the first two Goldsmiths Player of the Month awards of the season.
