Will is November’s ‘Tribute’ Winner!
Following votes cast to nominated Cornish Pirates players for St. Austell’ Brewery’s ‘Tribute’ Player of the Month for November, fly-half Will Cargill is congratulated on having been declared the winner.
Featuring in the three games played during the month, playing a total of 230 minutes, besides impressing with his all-round game management, in the process Will also amassed 31 points.
Besides Will, other worthy candidates nominated for the ‘Tribute’ Player of the Month award were prop Jack Andrew, back-rower Rupert Cooper, and scrum-half Alex Day.
The St. Austell Brewery ‘Tribute’ Player of the Month award was introduced last season, with the coaching team nominating four players each month. The winner is presented with a case of Tribute Ale, as is one lucky voter each month, who is chosen at random.
St. Austell Brewery proudly sponsor the Cornish Pirates, and the link for the ‘Tribute’ Player of the Month nominations and awards is at www.tributeale.co.uk.
