Munster’s player awards to take place this week

Munster’s player of the year awards to take place this week.

Fly-half Tyler Bleyendaal, prop John Ryan and hooker Niall Scannell are the three nominees for the Munster Rugby Senior Player of the Year accolade. The trio have been nominated by their peers as Munster’s stand out performers and their nominations are well warranted.

Bleyendaal has been in good form this season

The winner will be  announced at the 2017 Munster Rugby Awards which take place tomorrow, Thursday, May 4 at the Maryborough Hotel in Cork.

The award has an illustrious list of past winners including James Coughlan, John Hayes, Mick O’Driscoll, Ronan O’Gara, Donnacha Ryan, Tommy O’Donnell, Conor Murray and two-time recipient CJ Stander.

Greencore Munster Rugby Academy players Dan Goggin, Conor Oliver and Brian Scott have been nominated for the John McCarthy Award for Academy Player of the Year.

The annual event celebrates the best of Domestic and Professional rugby within the province, recognising both individual feats and those of clubs and schools on and off the field.

Eleven diverse categories will be honoured, ranging from Munster Rugby Player and Young Player of the Year through to emerging Academy talent, Women’s Player, Referee, Clubs and Schools.
