Man of the Month: April

Today might be April Fool's Day but my Man of the Month is far from an idiot.

As the Guinness Premiership season enters the home straight, once again I find myself nervously tapping at my calculator and praying for a great escape.

You see, life as a Leeds Carnegie fan is a tough one.  At the start of the season Leeds were written off by pundits and the media alike.  Halfway through the fixture list, Carnegie were still rooted to the bottom of the table and couldn't buy a win.

But then something wonderful started to happen.  A dramatic upturn in form.  Cohesive play.  Excellent performances by the Leeds pack.  Three successive wins and an amazing climb out of the drop spot.

Head Coach Neil Back and Director of Rugby Andy Key have been working wonders. 

However they don't win this month's award.

No, that honour goes to the man who said he would cancel Christmas for two Leeds Carnegie wins.

He is the man who will lead the boys in blue onto the pitch against Northampton on Saturday.

My Man of the Month for April is Marco Wentzel, Leeds Carnegie captain and line-out master extraordinaire.

Come on Marco - you can steer the boys into another season in the top flight!
