Vote for August's Player of the Month

Leicester Tigers fans can vote for the Lumbers Player of the Month for August, which recognises the contributions of players during the pre-season fixtures.

Prop Ben Betts, fly-half Joe Ford and lock Harry Wells have been nominated by the Tigers coaching staff for their performances in the home and away games against Ospreys and the Welford Road fixture with Benetton Treviso.

Fans can vote by clicking the tab below.

After spending the summer with the University of Sydney, prop Betts anchored the scrum to good effect in the 21-14 victory away to Ospreys and as a replacement against Benetton Treviso at Welford Road.

Ford made an instant impression in the pre-season fixtures, managing the conditions expertly at a rain-lashed Bridgend. Ford then orchestrated the 47-12 home win against Benetton Treviso before showing his versatility at full-back in the return game with Ospreys.

Academy graduate Wells was a key figure in the pack during the pre-season and was rewarded with his first home start in the Aviva Premiership against Gloucester Rugby in Round Three.

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.

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.
