England's George Burgess is up for Rookie of the Year and Wigan's Shaun Wane for Coach of the Year.

In addition, England's Richard Silverwood has been nominated for the International Referee of the Year prize.

The winners will be announced at the Rugby League International Federation dinner in Manchester on 27 November.

Brough won the 2013 Super League Man of Steel award last month after a season in which the Giants won the League Leaders Shield - the first time they have topped the table in 81 years.

Former Hull, Castleford and Wakefield half-back Brough - born in Dewsbury - broke Ben Gronow's Huddersfield club record of 147 goals in a season, which had stood for 93 years, and Pat Devery's record for points in a season, set in 1953.

The winners will be announced at a dinner in Manchester on 27 November.
