Skosan rewarded for excellent Premiership start

Springbok wing Courtnall Skosan has had his excellent start to life in the English Premiership with Northampton Saints recognised.

Skosan has been named as Northampton’s Player of the Month for October, after claiming almost 50% of the online supporter vote.

The 31-year-old Springbok picked up the award after beating fellow nominees Juarno Augustus, Fraser Dingwall and Alex Mitchell for his prolific efforts against Worcester Warriors and Leicester Tigers.

Despite only featuring in two of Saints’ four outings in October, Skosan crossed the whitewash five times in the month – scoring an impressive hat-trick on his debut against Worcester.

The quick-stepping wing made 195 metres with the ball in hand in his two appearances in a Saints shirt, making 25 carries and beating six defenders on his way to scoring five tries.
