Voting is open for the Intersport Scarlets player of the month for February.
The month saw a testing block of fixtures in the Guinness PRO14. After a home defeat to Edinburgh in the midst of Storm Dennis, Scarlets bounced back with a bonus-point win over Southern Kings, but it was Munster who took the spoils in Limerick last weekend to consolidate second place in the Conference B standings.
The previous winners are Kieran Hardy (October), Josh Macleod (November), Leigh Halfpenny (December) and Uzair Cassiem (January).
Here are the four players who have been nominated for the February award.
Top of the league turnover charts, the openside produced a man-of-the-match display against the Kings and was at the Scarlets’ efforts in Limerick.
The Wales international was to the fore in a battling performance at Thomond Park, poaching line-outs, carrying strongly and putting in a big defensive shift.
Playing at full-back instead of his more accustomed No.10 shirt, O’Brien has been an assured presence at the back with his kicking game a big weapon.
The Fijian lock has been a thunderous presence in the Scarlets boilerhouse and scored a debut try in the win over the Kings in round 12.
Voting closes on Friday, March 6 at 5pm. To register your vote click here.
