David Attwood: Named Gatorade Game Changer for November
Bath second row David Attwood has collected the Gatorade Game Changer Award for November.
Attwood wins the monthly accolade for his valiant effort in the Aviva Premiership loss to London Welsh.
The Gatorade Game Changer award rewards players responsible for sometimes unseen contributions to their team, be it the hard yard carries, work on the floor or tackles made - with the winner determined by official Premiership Rugby data provided by Opta.
And Attwood became the third player to receive the award this season - following Mike Brown and Chris Robshaw.
Attwood made six carries, 19 tackles and beat two defenders while covering 80 metres during the 16-9 defeat at the Kassam Stadium on November 4.
At the end of the season, the monthly winner with the greatest accumulative score is awarded the Gatorade Game Changer of the Season title - with Gonzalo Camacho claiming the crown last year.
