Premiership awards and team of the season round up

It’s that time of year again when end of season awards are being handed out left, right and centre.

Premiership rugby had their end of season ceremony on Wednesday 10th May and a total of seven awards were handed out on the night:

  • Community Player of the Season – Sean Maitland
  • Breakthrough Player of the Season – Tom Pearson
  • Director of Rugby of the Season – Mark McCall
  • Try of the Season – Mateo Carreras

  • Player of the Season – Ollie Lawrence
  • Premiership Rugby Top Points Scorer – Paddy Jackson
  • Premiership Rugby Top Try Scorer – Cadan Murley

A huge congratulations goes out to all of the winners but a special mention feels necessary for Player of the Season, Ollie Lawrence.

Rewind to the early months of the season, Lawrence’s professional future was in serious doubt after his team, Worcester Warriors went bust. Bath Rugby offered the outside centre a lifeline, and has been returning the favour ever since.

He has established himself as a ‘First player on the teamsheet’ figure for the blue black and whites and is already a fan favourite at The Rec. Allusive in attack and robust in defense, his performances this season have propelled him onto the international stage and is many people’s first choice centre heading into the world cup – a very worthy winner.

BT Sport Dream Team:

As expected many of the players who picked up awards on the night have featured in the team of the season. One of these is top try scorer Caden Murley, who’s partnership with electric Argentinean Mateo Carreras on the opposite wing would be great to watch.

Alex Mitchell and Rob Du Preez are the halfback pairing –  the later has potentially had the best season of his career and has been rock solid in the absence of George Ford for Sale.

Ben Earl collects more plaudits in a club shirt and there is room in the front row for the grubber kick sensation Val Rapava – Ruskin.
