JONATHAN DAVIES last night received two important awards: the Stones Bitter First Division player of the year and the Man of Steel, the personality who made the greatest impact on the game this season.

John Joyner, in his first season with Castleford, was coach of the year and Andy Farrell, of Wigan, young player of the year. Leeds received an award of a different kind, being fined pounds 12,000, half of it suspended for 12 months, for fielding a weakened side in a league game against Bradford during the run-up to the Challenge Cup final. The club had already been fined pounds 8,000 for a similar offence against St Helens.
