Following the selection of the most talented and elusive back line that performed in February, we now take a look at who lays the platform down for the back line: The Forward pack.
Listed below are the top six performing forwards in their respectable playing positions who caught our eyes in February and deserve to be recognised in such circumstances.
Prop Forwards – Dave Taylor & Grant Millington
A difficult choice as many prop forwards are used throughout the sport; however, Dave Taylor of Catalan and Grant Millington of Castleford Tigers.
Many may argue that Adam Cuthbertson and Alex Walmsley have perhaps been unfairly left out; however, both players have stood out thus far.
Dave Taylor started slow with the Dragons, though his strong running has been tiring out teams and his two tries against Leeds Rhinos were superb.
Grant Millington recently caused Hull plenty of problems with his strong running and miraculous offloading, two key characteristics crucial to a forward, traits that he commonly demonstrates.
Taylor may be carrying some excessive weight but it hasn’t halted his charge this early in the campaign.
Millington has added some skill in the forwards for the Tigers which is another crucial area in which Castleford can come forward as contenders this season.
Both deserving of their places and should produce more action should they remain injury free.
