The voting is now open for the Lumbers Player of the Month for September with Sione Kalamafoni, Nick Malouf and Jonny May on the shortlist.

Tonga international Sione Kalamafoni has made more carries (90) than any other player in the opening six Aviva Premiership rounds. The back-rower has also made the third-most tackles (82) and is joint ninth in terms of offloads with seven.

Jonny May scored his sixth try in his first six games for Tigers in the win over London Irish, but his contributions elsewhere on the pitch have also been impressive. The England international winger has made 71 carries, made 473 metres, beat 24 defenders, made 11 offloads and 15 breaks in his first six games.

Nick Malouf has settled straight into life at Welford Road after making the switch from sevens in the summer. The Australian winger has scored three times in his first six games, but has also impressed with some hard-hitting tackling and breakdown work which has seen him make three turnovers already.

The trio are aiming to follow Harry Wells, who picked up August’s award. Fans can vote now on the Lumbers website by clicking the button below.

Voting closes on Thursday, October 19 and the winner will be announced during half-time of the Champions Cup clash with Castres Olympique at Welford Road on Saturday, October 21.

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

Each month during the season, fans will be asked to pick their top performer from a shortlist of three players. The player with the most votes on the Lumbers website will win the award, which will be presented on the Welford Road pitch during half-time of a big first-team fixture.

Established in 1881, Lumbers jewellers have been at the heart of Leicester for more than 135 years - just like the Tigers - and are the sponsors of the club’s monthly player of the month award.

The Lumbers team offers unparalleled service and knowledge for clients at their new premises in High Street, Leicester, with an extensive range of services including jewellery and watch repairs, valuations and engraving.
