Wheats Player of the Month

Club legend wins player of November

Club legend and Vice Chairmen Ben Craig has been named as the Old Wheatleyans Player of the Month for November. With 3 Wheats games played in November the big man featured in 2 games scoring 4 wonderful tries. Ben has been playing in his new position at loose head this season and he certainly doesn't look out of place.

Craigy's hard running caused havoc away at Pershore at the start of November and he was one of the stand out players in the bonus point win. He managed to set up a couple of tries as well as dotting down himself.

Then came yet another Wheats hat-trick for Craigy at home to Redditch. Some fantastic attacking play from the Wheats that day dismantled the away side. Ben managed to bag himself 3 superb tries to bring his try tally to 9 for the season, in just 5 games.

We all hope he can continue his blistering form into Saturdays game away at Bedworth.

Ben Craig is sponsored by Wildcard Strength & Conditioning, Cross Fit Gym at Fargo Village, Coventry.
