Shortlist for McCrea Financial Services Warrior of the Month unveiled
Four standouts are shortlisted for the McCrea Financial Services Warrior of the Month following winning streak
Five wins in five games sets the Warriors off to a momentous start as we head into 2023. Finishing off the year with the 1872 Cup win, Glasgow Warriors have been dominating in their games in both the URC and the EPCR Challenge Cup.
As usual the four shortlisted have been selected by Franco Smith and his coaching team for their performance on and off field throughout December.
Supporters can vote for their warrior over on our Twitter page. Voting will close 5pm Saturday 7 January.
The nominees are:
Leading the forwards throughout December, Bhatti has been instrumental in the winning form of the Warriors in recent weeks. Lethal with the ball and a controlling force up front, Bhatti has shown his skill and experience on the pitch.
Fraser Brown has been very coming into his own over the last few games. The Scotland International has been forceful in his tackles and his line out accuracy is uncontested within the URC. The physical play and accuracy has been crucial in the Warriors not just getting points on the sheet but winning their games.
Player of the Match in the final game of the year, Sione Tuipulotu was on fire. Dominating runs and precision in passes, saw Tuipulotu involved in many of the build up play that led to the Warriors scoring on Friday’s 1872 Cup winner.
Leading by example both on and off the pitch, Captain Kyle Steyn is nominated once again for Warrior of the Month. Steyn was the first one on the score sheet on Friday’s 1872 Cup decider. Not content with just scoring, Steyn was involved with setting up George Horne’s classic try at the end of the game that solidified the win for the Warriors.
