Huddersfield Giants stand-off Danny Brough is in line to win his third Albert Goldthorpe Medal after overtaking leader Travis Burns at the weekend.

With a maximum three points from his side’s dismantling of Widnes, Brough edged a point clear of Burns, who failed to register in the Goldthorpe standings in Hull KR’s draw with Wigan.
