Goldsmiths player voting now open

Voting is now open for the first Goldsmiths Player of the Month award of the new season.

Freddie Burns, Julian Salvi and Ben Youngs are on the three-man shortlist for the September award and fans can vote for their favourite now on the Goldsmiths Facebook page by clicking here.
Burns scored the most points by a Tigers player on their Premiership debut – and the third highest haul on debut in the club’s history – with his 16 points against Newcastle Falcons on the opening day of the season.
He was named the Aviva Man of the Match by BT Sport commentators for his display in the away win at Exeter Chiefs in round two.
Salvi topped the Aviva Premiership tables in terms of tackling last season with 235, and was second in the turnover chart with 26.
And the back rower has started this season in the same vein, putting himself into the thick of the action at the coalface typified by his 15 tackles in the game against London Irish.
Youngs, meanwhile, captained Tigers for the first time in a competitive game in the opening day win against Newcastle, leading the team to a bonus-point win.
And he was on hand to score the match-winning try in the away game at Sandy Park in Aviva Premiership Round Two.
The Tigers Player of the Month award is supported by Goldsmiths, the largest prestige and luxury jewellers in the UK, who are official East Stand sponsors and official timekeepers.
