Yorkshire Carnegie fly half Harry Leonard has been nominated for the Player of the Month award for the Greene King IPA Championship, with only three rounds remaining in the regular league season.

Rotherham Titans are represented by two players in the March line-up, bringing their total to three across the five Player of the Month rounds after Joel Gill was included in November's shortlist. Alex Rieder has earned a nomination after impressing during Rotherham's victory over Moseley, proving instrumental with his ball-carrying ability and the assist which led to Dan White's try. Should the Titans finish in the top four, Rieder will have had a massive hand to play in securing a second consecutive play-off spot for the Yorkshire side.

Fellow Titan James Mckinney also receives a nomination, having been selected by half of the panel members. McKinney's ability to put Rotherham in the right areas of the field has enabled the Titans to adopt a more pragmatic game plan and one that has resulted in wins over Moseley and Cornish Pirates and a narrow defeat to Bristol. McKinney turned in a man of the match performance in the televised clash against the Cornish Pirates and has scored 40 points in the first three fixtures of March.

"Whether the Moseley scrum is going forward, he always seems to emerge with the ball” commented a member of the voting panel when nominating Chris Brightwell. Increasingly reliable in the lineout, the Moseley number eight's efforts in March did not go unnoticed, despite his club's two defeats. The Kiwi's vast experience – having previously played for Sale Sharks, Bedford Blues and England Sevens – is proving fruitful for Moseley as they look to secure Championship rugby next season.

Max Stelling represents Worcester's fourth nomination, with Mike Williams, Sam Betty and Ryan Mills previously included in the nominees. A constant in the Warriors midfield, Stelling has been involved in 17 games for the Warriors this season and named in the starting line-up for 15 of them. Contesting for the starting spot with international Alex Grove, the 21-year-old has scored13 tries, with two coming in March. "He has pace, eye for a break, spatial awareness and is a real athlete” commented a panel member.

Finally, Yorkshire Carnegie fly-half Harry Leonard is included amongst the nominees. Looking increasingly assured at half-back, Leonard's return to the number 10 jersey has coincided with a run of three straight wins for Carnegie. Leonard's pinpoint crossfield kick for Oli Goss's try against Jersey was top drawer, while his goal-kicking percentage continues to climb.
