Catalans players who did not take their Steve Prescott Man of Steel voting seriously will be asked to make a donation to charity.

League Weekly reported today that the Rugby Football League has written to the Dragons after some players nominated former team-mates - including Wigan’s French duo Romain Navarrete and Morgan Escare - while Danny Addy picked up a vote even though he missed the entire season with a knee injury.

Catalans have reportedly backed their idea that the mischievous players make a donation to the Steve Prescott Foundation.

St Helens’ Ben Barba was crowned the Steve Prescott Man of Steel earlier this month. Team-mate James Roby and Wigan forward John Bateman were also shortlisted.
