Valentino Mapapalangi has been named the Lumbers Player of the Month for November.

The Leicester Tigers back-rower was announced as the winner during half-time of this afternoon’s Aviva Premiership game against Saracens.

Mapapalangi finished ahead of teammates Mike Fitzgerald and Graham Kitchener in the supporter vote.

He follows Harry Wells, Jonny May and Telusa Veainu in winning the award so far this season.

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.

Last season’s Lumbers Player of the Month winners included England international Ellis Genge, lock forward Harry Wells after his eye-catching performances in the successful Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign and Players’ Player of the Year Adam Thompstone.

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.
