Billy Brickhill has been a strong character for the Lions in April, showing his versatility.
The 22-year-old, who celebrated his birthday this week, has shown his talent at loose forward and at hooker. Brickhill has been solid from the bench, and had stand-out games against York City Knights and in the victory against his former club, Rochdale Hornets.
The Welsh international came close to winning March’s award, and with another impressive month he is up for April’s title.
The powerhouse scored in Swinton’s defeat over Rochdale Hornets, and has played big minutes throughout the season. Bennion has played an influential part of Swinton’s middles, and is a true leader on the field, with powerful runs and consistent performances.
The big forward also made one of the biggest breaks of the game against the Wolfpack, as Toronto hosted the Lions for their home opening game of 2019 in front of a record-breaking crowd.
Arguably one of the most improved players of the year so far, Paddy Jones has worked hard on and off the field, which has seen him promoted to the starting 13 in 2019.
The forward has played in several roles for the Lions, and never fails to do the hard graft for his team.
Another powerful forward in Stuart Littler’s side, P.Jones continues to improve and has had both an impressive month and season so far.
Four tries, Ken Gowers Memorial Trophy winner and helping putting away the equipment. That’s how Mike Butt’s Good Friday afternoon went in Swinton’s victory over their oldest rivals in Rochdale.
Butt scored his first of four tries inside four minutes, and helped lead the Lions to an important derby victory.
The Welsh international also scored against Toronto Wolfpack, and has been a fan favourite throughout the season.
