Last Updated: 29/05/19 11:50am
The Steve Prescott Man of Steel results are in and have been published for Round 16 of the 2019 Super League season. Find out who took maximum points below...
The 2019 Betfred Super League Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel Award will be chosen by a panel consisting of 21 former players and coaches, including seven previous winners of Man of Steel, and boasting a combined total of 46 Championship or Grand Final wins, and 41 Challenge Cup winners' medals.
A member of the panel will watch each Betfred Super League game and award points to the three outstanding players - three points for their chosen man of the match, two points for the runner-up, and one point for the third-ranked player.
The scores will be made public every week until Round 22 in mid-July. After that, the poll will be hidden until the awards ceremony in October.

Adjudicator Ellery Hanley MBE said: "Very rarely has Tommy fallen below an 8-out-of-10 performance this season. His huge value to St Helens is almost hard to measure, as what you see in his yardage gain and putting St Helens on the front foot.
"He causes a destruction in the opposition defence by pulling its shape from pillar to post, causing the openings for St Helens' attack for their other wrecking ball players.
"And to add to all of that, his tackling and defence was almost faultless."
