Makinson claims Golden Boot award

8 November 2018 04:15

St Helens wing Tommy Makinson became just the fifth Englishman to be awarded the Rugby League World Golden Boot Award.

Makinson, 27, claimed the award ahead of England team-mate Elliott Whitehead, Australia's James Tedesco and New Zealand captain Dallin Watene-Zelezniak.

He became the first England player since Kevin Sinfield (2012) to win the prize – which is chosen by a media panel – and just the fifth since 1984.

Makinson has enjoyed a fine season, including scoring a hat-trick in England's win over New Zealand on Sunday.

"It's pretty special, not something I thought I was going to be in with a chance for at the start of the night," he said.

"Even to be nominated was something special and to come away with, it means so much to me."
