Ratchford storms up Albert Goldthorpe Medal charts

Stefan Ratchford has moved to within a point of James Roby at the top of the Albert Goldthorpe Medal table.

The Warrington fullback picked up three points following his performance in the Wolves’ draw with Catalans, taking him up to 21 for the season.

That has seen the England international move above fellow fullbacks Sam Tomkins and Ben Barba in the standings, and a point behind Roby, who retains the lead after being allocated one point following Saints’ win over Hull FC.

League Express reporters are asked to name their three best players from every game, with the best player being allocated three points.

As it stands, Roby is the leader, but with Ratchford just a point behind and Barba and Tomkins only three points adrift, things could change quickly.
