Leeds veteran Jamie Peacock has been short-listed for the 2013 Man of Steel award - 10 years after lifting the coveted trophy.
The 35-year-old former Bradford and England superstar has rolled back the years with the Rhinos this season, producing a string of brilliant performances for the Super League champions.
He is up against Wigan captain Sean O'Loughlin and Huddersfield skipper Danny Brough for the award, with the winner to be announced at a gala dinner in Manchester on Monday, September 30.
The award is given to the player deemed to have had the biggest impact on a season.
The Rugby Football League also announced the three men on the young player of the year list were Hull centre Ben Crooks, London winger Kieran Dixon and Catalan Dragons full-back Morgan Escare.
