MAY PLAYER OF THE MONTH NOMINEES REVEALED

MAY PLAYER OF THE MONTH NOMINEES REVEALED

by | Jun 5, 2024

It’s time to vote for your May Player of the Month.

Almost midway through 2024, Paul Rowley’s Salford Red Devils sit sixth in the Betfred Super League and are right amongst the battle for a playoff position.

The month of May brought fixtures against Huddersfield Giants, Leigh Leopards and the reigning world champions, Wigan Warriors.

A storming first-half display the John Smith’s Stadium was enough to see-off the Giants, who almost staged a late comeback.

Nene Macdonald scored twice, with Ethan Ryan also finishing an outstanding team try on another fantastic night in West Yorkshire.

In between a weeks’ rest due to Challenge Cup action, the Red Devils did suffer back-to-back defeats against the Leopards and the Warriors, but had their moments in each game where momentum could have swung.

Across the three games, four players stood out above rest, so here are your Player of the Month nominees.

It feels like every week we’re highlighting the brilliance of Nene Macdonald.

The PNG international still leads the league in post-contact metres and continues to be one of our top performers, week on week.

As does the skipper, Kallum Watkins – our next nominee.

A player who sets the standard and rarely dips from the world class levels that have seen him win multiple major honours during his illustrious career.

Since returning from injury, Ollie Partington has been an ever-present in the team at 13.

With some fierce competition from Joe Shorrocks, who himself has been a brilliant addition to the squad, Partington’s performances have been outstanding across May.

Our final nominee is Deon Cross, who has taken-up a familiar role – but new since joining Salford – on the wing.

Signing a new two-year deal in the off-season, the England Knights international has continued his exciting development under our coaching staff.
