Former Rooster and Sea Eagle Jackson Hastings has been named the English Super League’s Steve Prescott Man of Steel.
The 23-year-old, who spent five years in the NRL, signed with the Salford Red Devils last season after controversially departing Manly amid speculation surrounding his relationships his then-teammates.
Hastings has had a profound impact on Salford in 2019, his first full season in the Super League, leading his club to a grand final appearance after a second-last finish in 2018.
He has parlayed his success with Salford into a contract with Super League powerhouse Wigan from next year.
Hastings has played 35 games in total for the Red Devils, scoring 11 tries.
