Nick Abendanon wins Guinness Premiership Try of the Season award

Nick Abendanon wins Guinness Premiership Try of the Season award

The annual Guinness Premiership Awards evening took place in London earlier in the week, with Bath and Nick Abendanon scooping the Try of the Season award for this effort against Leeds a few weeks back.

Bath teammate Olly Barkley picked up the Community Player of the Season award, while in form Northampton Saints wing (no, not Soane Tonga'uiha) Chris Ashton was named Player of the Season.

Proming young Leicester scrumhalf Ben Youngs was given the Discovery of the Season award, with Saracens Andy Saull coming second. Andy Key was named as Director of Rugby of the Season for his part in helping Leeds Carnegie up. Jim Mallinder was a narrow second on that one.

You might have seen this try already, perhaps as part of the highlights packages, but it was requested to be shown again and is up for discussion if you think its your try of the season, or maybe there were others that were more worthy.

It was a great effort though, with it starting way back and going through the hands of both backs and forwards before Abendanon dazzled with some great running and a stunning dummy on his way to the tryline.

There's been a few unsavoury incidents featured this week, so it's time for the good stuff as we start with this great try, then up next is the Super 14 Pick of the Week. Enjoy.
