Last chance to vote for Lumbers Player of the Month

Figure image

There's just 24 hours left to vote for your Leicester Tigers Lumbers Player of the Month for November.

Forwards Mike Fitzgerald, Graham Kitchener and Valentino Mapapalangi make up the three-man shortlist. 

Fitzgerald made a seamless return to the first-team during November after a lengthy spell out through injury. He made a team-high 18 tackles in the win against Sale Sharks and scored a try against Worcester Warriors in his second game back from injury.

Kitchener won seven lineouts against Sale Sharks, the most across the Aviva Premiership in Round 8, and made a team-high 18 tackles in the game. He also won more lineouts than any other player in Aviva Premiership Round 9 with 13 against Worcester Warriors.

Mapapalangi has been growing with each game he has played in a Tigers shirt, and produced one of the moments of the season so far when his offload put over Nick Malouf for the bonus-point try against Sale Sharks.

Voting closes at midday on Thursday, December 21.  The player with the most votes will be presented on the Welford Road pitch during half-time of the Aviva Premiership game against Saracens at Welford Road on Christmas Eve.

Supported by High Street jewellers Lumbers and voted for by Tigers supporters, the player of the month award recognises the contributions of individual players to the team cause throughout the campaign.
