A motion has been tabled in Parliament celebrating the life of Steve Prescott MBE, calling him “a hero in sport and in life”.  The motion reads:
 
Steve Prescott MBE
That this House mourns the passing of Steve Prescott MBE; celebrates a hero in sport and in life; recognises his rugby league footballing talent for England, Ireland, Lancashire, St Helens, Hull FC, Wakefield Trinity and Thatto Heath Crusaders; admires his ability to create and face incredible challenges after being diagnosed with pseudomyxoma peritonei commends his assiduous fundraising efforts despite his condition; is grateful to Steve and his family, friends and the rugby league community for supporting him and all those involved in his incredible feats to raise money for worthy causes; is humbled by his truly inspiring nature; feels that adding his name to the Man of Steel award would be fitting tribute to a genuine man of steel.


“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”  Eleanor Roosevelt

I'm really against the renaming of the Man of Steel award.  Danny Brough rightly won it this year and he's not worthy of an award carrying his name.
