Bradbury voted December’s Scottish Building Society Player of the Month
Scotland international Magnus Bradbury was today voted Scottish Building Society Player of the Month for December.
The back-row capped off an excellent end to 2021 by becoming Edinburgh Rugby's 36th club centurion, making his 100th appearance in the home bonus-point victory over Benetton, a game in which Bradbury was also named Player of the Match.
It was in the bonus-point away win over Dragons that Bradbury was perhaps at his most devastating however, with the back-row bulldozing though the Welsh side's defence on more than one occasion.
Bradbury has also been a brick wall in defence, with the former Oban man making huge defensive plays at integral moments in the capital club’s three consecutive victories throughout November/ December.
Bradbury said: “I’m really happy to have won this award. I feel really privileged to have the supporters vote me as their Player of the Month.
“There are a number of players in the team that could have had their hand up to win the award, so it just goes to show how many guys are playing at the top of their game at the moment.
"The matter of the fact is that three back-row players were nominated for the award, which really underlines the quality we have in that position."
Sponsored and backed by Scottish Building Society, the initiative sees Edinburgh’s Main Club Partner generously donate £500 to Bradbury’s charity of choice – Macmillan Cancer Support – and it’s a cause that sits very close to the back-row’s heart.
Bradbury continued: “The charity I have chosen is Macmillan Cancer Support. I have a few family members that have suffered or are suffering from cancer at the moment, so any donation they can get is brilliant.
“It’s great that we’re able to support a charity that means so much to me. I’m delighted that this donation will play a part in supporting some of the brilliant work they do in providing aid to those under their care.”
Head Coach Mike Blair added: “Magnus can be really proud of how he has performed so far this season, so it’s great to see him pick up December’s Player of the Month award after a really strong end to 2021.
“He’s worked really hard on developing his overall skillset while maintaining that physicality which we all see every time Magnus steps on the pitch.
“We’re delighted to see Magnus rewarded for his consistency and we look forwarding seeing him kick on in 2022.”
