Lost Loiners Awards Night 2011.
The 'Golden Dummies' were once again held at Hunslet Hawks Phoenix Bar, with entertainment been provided by the Above Average Weight Band. In a change to the running order, we started the night off with 'Odd Balls Bingo'. With a collections of phrases heard on a Monday night, it was the band that won the star prize of Namibian Beer. After that the raffle was drawn with the main prize of 2 tickets to the 4 Nations Final at Elland Road. After that it was onto the main event.
Top Try Scorer:-
Only tries in the league tournaments count for this award, mainley because we don't keep count on Mondays! For the first time the top try scorer is tried, both player scoring 18 tries - Winners Danny Broadbent & Michael Evers
'Sticky Balls' Award:-
This award went to a man who always likes to get his hands on the ball. Many say he just likes playing with himself. Rarley can a man have played with himself so often during a games, its almost like the ball is stuck to him.
