Lewis was presented with his trophy by Hull KR Assistant Coach, and all-time leading try scorer in Super League, Danny Mcguire.
Lewis said of his try: “When I put the ball down, it didn’t really sink in until I looked around and everyone is running in, I looked at the crowd and they were all going crazy!”
“People ask me what was I thinking at the time, it was just to play with my eyes up. That’s what I’ve learnt to do over the last year.
“I take my hat off to everyone that has voted for me, it is appreciated and hopefully there is a lot more to come next year.”
The top three, as voted for by fans, were;
Winner: Mikey Lewis (Hull KR)
Second: Will Pryce (Giants)
Third: Jack Brown (Hull FC)
During the 2022 season fans will again be able to pick the Northern Try of the month and Try of the season.
