Paul March Named Premier Sports POTW

Keighley Cougars Player-Coach Paul March is the Premier Sports Player of the Week.

Marchy turned in a dominant performance to help his side to a crucial Kingstone Press Championship win at Whitehaven.

The Cougars were significant underdogs going into the game against a Whitehaven side with an impressive home record, having lost heavily at home to the Batley Bulldogs in their last outing.

But they blew the home side off the park in the first half, with March the key man as they raced into a 34-0 half time lead.

March, playing at scrum half, scored twice in the five minutes leading up to the break.

He completed an impressive hat trick on 51 minutes to help guide his side further away from the relegation battle. Paul also made the team of the week along with Brendon Rawlins.
