Vote for your Lumbers Player of the Month

Voting is now open for fans to select the Lumbers Player of the Month.

George Ford, Harry Wells and George Worth are all in contention for the latest prize following their performances in the Heineken Champions Cup matches against Scarlets and Ulster, the Premiership Rugby Cup clash with Northampton Saints, and return to Gallagher Premiership league action at Saracens.

You can have your say now by voting at the link below. Voting is open until Thursday, February 28 and the winner will be announced at half-time in the game against Wasps at Welford Road on Saturday, March 2.

Scrum-half Ben White claimed the first Player of the Month award of the new year, following in the footsteps of David Denton, George Ford, George Worth and Jonah Holmes earlier in the campaign.

Supported by High Street jewellers Lumbers and voted for by Tigers supporters, the monthly prize recognises the contributions of individual players throughout the campaign.

Each month, fans are asked to pick their top performer from a shortlist of three nominated by the Tigers coaching staff. The player with the most votes on the Lumbers website will win the award, which is then presented on the Welford Road pitch.

George Ford
England international Ford scored eight points from the boot, including a huge effort from the touchline, in the Champions Cup victory over Ulster at Welford Road. Aside from his impact on the scoreboard, Ford also put in a commanding display in the match, with jinking runs and clever kicks to keep his side in a tight tussle with the Irish province.

Harry Wells
Second-rower Wells featured in all four February fixtures, in the starting line-up against Scarlets and Saints – where he captained a young side – as well as coming off the bench in the Ulster game and at Allianz Park. Wells was a prominent ball-carrier against Ulster, but it was at Scarlets where he made himself a real nuisance, denying scrum-half Gareth Davies on the tryline and forcing turnovers across the field in an attempt to get Tigers on the front foot.

George Worth
Full-back Worth started the games against the Scarlets and Saracens, and set up the try for Jonah Holmes against the Premiership champions with a daring break at Allianz Park. He carried 17 times and made 79 metres against Saracens to stand out on a frustrating afternoon for Tigers.

Voting closes next Thursday (February 28) and the winner will be announced at half-time next Saturday (March 2) during the Round 5 Gallagher Premiership derby with Wasps. Match tickets are available now.
