Aussie Blake Austin is inching further ahead of his nearest  rivals in the race for the Steve Prescott Man of Steel award after 17 rounds of voting.

The Warrington half back picked up a maximum three point in Saturday's 34-4 home win over the Catalans Dragons, taking his table-topping total to 24 and continuing his remarkable spell of consistency.

Wakefield's David Fifita (currently out injured) is second with 18 and followed by Castleford's Liam Watts on 17 and St Helens' Lachlan Coote, who was rested for Sunday's match at London, one point further adrift.

Team-mate James Roby, who led the field early doors, is in seventh spot but will now lose ground after head coach Justin Holbrook revealed at the weekend that his skipper is to undergo groin surgery which will keep him out of action for at least four weeks and obviously no chance of picking up any points.
