In the event that you had said to me at the beginning of the year that Salford, that battled relegation last year, could not just reach the play-offs but nil Castleford and demolish Wigan in their own back yard on the way into some first ever Super League Grand Final, I would not have believed you.
I, along with a great deal of people, was wrong to doubt them. However, Jackson Hastings has been at the heart of an astonishing Salford side this season.
The award marks an incredible turnaround to the Australian, who left with the NRL but he has since got his head back and prompted a campaign to remember for Salford.
Ask and theyll paint an image of a personality, that has captured his opportunity and gone over and beyond to endear himself to the help of the club.
His form this year has lent him a move to Wigan and, having beaten his potential teammates at Fridays convincing success, Hastings now stands on the brink of departing the Red Devils as a golf superstar when he can lead them to success against a powerful St Helens staff in the Grand Final.
