Jacob up for top gong

Have your say

HALIFAX’S dual-registered Huddersfield forward Jacob Fairbank is among the nominees for Championship Young Player of the Year.

Fairbank, who missed yesterday’s play off loss with a torn quadricep, joins Batley’s Dane Manning - reputedly a Fax transfer target - and Jamie Ellis of Leigh on a three-man short list.

Incoming Fax boss Karl Harrison has been nominated for Coach of the Year alongside Leigh’s Ian Millward and Featherstone’s Daryl Powell.

The winners will be announced a week tomorrow.
