Congratulations to Harlequins fly half, Ben Botica who has won the Etihad Airways Player of the Month Award for October.
Harlequins fans have had their say, and voted for Ben who fought off competition from Matt Hopper Rob Buchanan, Nick Easter and Danny Care
Botica was shortlisted after taking the reigns while fellow Kiwi fly-half Nick Evans was been injured. In Just his second appearance for the club, and in the opening round of the Heineken Cup, Botica notched 18 points from the boot.
This was followed a week later on his starting debut, with 20 points against Connacht. Reliable again from the boot in the victory over London Irish, Botica was key in the build-up to Tom Williams' try.
During week commencing 22nd April Harlequins will launch an innovative, new Membership Scheme which will replace the existing Season Ticket Holder Programme. Further details of the scheme will be announced in due course.
