Pro12 Player of the Season - Nominations

Post by Pot Hale on Thu 05 May 2016, 9:38 pm

Who do you think warrants player of the season for the PRO12 league this season?   Who has stood up and been counted across the rounds and played a significant part in his team's performance?

Add your nominations in here.  And after sufficient nominations, let's say next Friday 13 May, I'll add in a poll for people to vote.


To keep numbers down for polling purposes, nominate a maximum of five top picks from amongst the 12 teams and their squads.

I'd have
Matt Healy, Connacht 
Bundee Aki, Connacht
Leone Nakawara, Glasgow
CJ Stander, Munster
Rhys Patchell
Jayden Hayward, Treviso


I might change my mind before the 13th....(I did)

From the provinces I have been most impressed by;

Bundee Aki
Denis Buckley
Paddy Jackson
CJ Stander

Struggling as I only watch the Irish teams each week, really. For instance there must be several deserving Glasgow players but I couldn't delineate which ones have been consistent across all 22 rounds.

Really?

That's four teams by 22 rounds. 

And you couldn't think of a single other player who they played against who might have been good in the matches you did watch?

I've also been a massive fan of Finn Russell, and Hogg has been deadly since the Six Nations. Tommy Seymour is also a fantastically consistent player. Up front there are a number of players I really rate; not so much Nakarawa (too loose) but I'm a big fan of Fusaro and Favaro. Jonny Gray goes without saying.

I'm just not in a position to say which of these is the most deserving, or if I have missed an obvious one. I've only seen them play three or four times this season plus highlights.

I really rate him very highly. Davies, that is. I rate Aki too of course. He should probably win it.

Agree with you on Finn Russell - probably the most accomplished 10 this season, although Jackson runs him close.

Knowing how these 'official' competitions go, the official nominations will probably just be all the big names, regardless of how much they've contributed to the Pro 12.

Brian O'Driscoll will probably still get a nomination!

Adam Warren. Just because playing 30 out of 30 is some shift.

From the regions Warren, like stone said played all the dragons matches in all competitions this season. Hadleigh Parkes is a close second, not missed a minute of the Pro12 this season.

Warren missed a Pro 12 match. 

Parkes is one of 5 who have played all 21 rounds. 

It's only Pro12 appearances that is being considered for this vote.

Pro 12 website has him missing out the boxing day game at the Liberty against the O's but espn and Dragons websites have him playing that day. Who is right, who is wrong? I think Pro 12 website got it wrong and it wouldn't be the first time.

Pro 12 have Adam Hughes playing 13 in the match on Jan 2 against Ospreys in their preview. There was an Aaron Warren was on the bench. Maybe that's where error occurred.
