POTM: October nominees announced

Find out more information on October’s Scottish Building Society Player of the Month nominees below and their chosen causes.

Ben Healy – VOTE NOW

The Scotland stand-off has made an instant impact since joining from Munster in the summer.

A Player of the Match performance in his debut – which saw Healy nudge over 17 points in a road win at Rodney Parade – was followed up by a typically solid display against Emirates Lions as Healy remained perfect from the tee.

Chosen cause: It’s Good 2 Give

Luke Crosbie – VOTE NOW

Crosbie has been a standout performer after linking back up with the squad following the conclusion of the Rugby World Cup.

The back-row has picked up consecutive Peak Performer awards – given to the Edinburgh Rugby player who impressed most on matchday – recording back-to-back games with the highest number of tackles made.

Crosbie crossed the whitewash in the Round 2 victory over Emirates Lions to add further shine to an altogether impressive day at the office.

Chosen cause: Currie Chieftains minis section

Matt Currie – VOTE NOW

Currie has been handed back-to-back starts to begin the season, grabbing the number 12 jersey with both hands with a run of impressive performances.

Starting at inside centre in both wins to begin the campaign, Currie has been asked to take on a new role having regularly been selected at outside centre.

The former Dumfries RFC and Merchiston Castle centre has offered Healy a safe pair of hands in the 12 channel, acting as a pressure valve with plenty of hard runs and dirty work at the breakdown.

Chosen cause: Dumfries Saints RFC minis section


The winger has been all-action in the opening rounds of BKT United Rugby Championship fixtures, starting in both wins against Dragons and Emirates Lions.

Goosen showcased his explosiveness with a brilliant chip-chase turnover penalty away at Rodney Parade, while his aerial prowess was a joy to behold against Emirates Lions, collecting two high-balls which set up Ewan Ashman’s eventual match winner!

Chosen cause: It’s Good 2 Give
