Who’s your Scarlets player of the month?

Rob LloydNews

With the opening block of United Rugby Championship fixtures completed, it’s time to vote for your Oil 4 Wales Scarlets supporters player of the month.

The October award takes in all five matches against Edinburgh, Emirates Lions, Munster, Leinster and Benetton and includes a number of standout individual performances.

Here are the contenders

Scott Williams

The experienced centre has returned to the Scarlets with a bang and delivered a player-of-the-match display against Benetton, setting up a try double for Dane Blacker, which earned Scott a recall to the national squad this autumn. 

Sione Kalamafoni

A regular on this list, Scarlets’ Mr Consistent was outstanding in the opening two matches against Edinburgh and the Lions with his ball-carrying dynamism against the South Africans earning him the player-of-the-match accolade.

Rob Evans

The Wales international prop has been at the heart of the Scarlets’ forward effort, featuring in all five matches and crossing for close-range tries against the Lions and Benetton. Has also been showcasing his renowned handling skills.

Johnny McNicholl

J-Mac has been one of the leading attackers in the URC so far, third in the list of metres gained and joint fourth in off-loads. Also pouched tries against Edinburgh, Munster and Leinster and took that form into Wales’ Autumn Series opener against the All Blacks.

Blade Thomson

Has been a go-to player in the opening rounds, with and without the ball. One of the Championship’s top tacklers, Blade has also bagged himself seven turnovers, with only Cardiff’s Will Boyde above him.
