Travis Burns extends Albert Goldthorpe Medal lead

by: League Express, July 28, 2014, 12:52 pm

Hull Kingston Rovers talisman Travis Burns has extended his lead atop the Albert Goldthorpe Medal standings thanks to another commanding performance against London Broncos on Saturday.

The Australian picked up two points for his influence on the match, which saw his lead over Leon Pryce, who failed to register a Goldthorpe point, grow to four.

Huddersfield pivot Danny Brough is staking a late claim to win his third medal after picking up another three points and moving level with Pryce in second place.

The next three closest challengers – Daryl Clark (21), Kevin Brown (18) and Morgan Escare (18) – all failed to make up any ground and, with only five games to go, Burns now looks favourite to pick up the prestigious accolade, which is awarded to the player deemed to be the best and fairest throughout the season by League Express reporters.
