Saints skipper Dylan Hartley has beaten George North and four others to claim the Aviva Premiership player of the month award for January.

Hartley and North were included on a shortlist that also consisted of Bath’s Anthony Watson, Gloucester’s Jonny May and Saracens duo David Strettle and Alex Goode.

But it was the Northampton captain who came out on top, winning acclaim for his display in the win against Harlequins on January 3 and in Heineken Cup games against Ospreys and Castres.

Meanwhile, Wales wing North won Saints’ version of the January award just a day earlier, fending off competition from Alex Waller and Tom Wood.
