June's Man of the Month is Players' Player of the year and all round nice guy, the ever smiling Schalk Brits.
Along with this award, voted by his peers, the Saracens hooker was also named player of the year on this humble blog, polling more than a third of all votes.
During only his first season in the Guinness Premiership, Brits scooped countless man of the match awards and was also named in the Opta Team of the Year. He made more than twice as many metres as any other hooker and also beat more defenders than any other forward in the top flight. Brits was also successful with more line out throws than any other player in the league.
I like Schalk Brits. Not only is he an explosive forward with the pace and step of a centre, but Brits always plays the game with a big smile on his face.
