Scotland Rugby League Awards

TWO of Scotland?s most exciting prospects received their Player of the Year Awards at a presentation ceremony after the Scotland v Australia Student International at Raeburn Place in Edinburgh last Sunday night. Glasgow Bulls winger Andy McPhail ? who scored with his first touch as a full international against Wales in October ? picked up the inaugural Roy Kinnear Award for Scotland Students Player of the Year. McPhail was one of six Napier University undergraduates in the Scotland Students side that lost 26-6 to the Aussies, McPhail setting up the home side?s only try with a trademark breakaway. The Glaswegian started the season in the Scotland Students side and after a prolific summer was promoted to the A team and eventually two full caps in the European Nations Cup.
