It's been a great year for Irish rugby, between the Six Nations Grand Slam for the national team and Leinster within reach of a fourth Heineken Cup/European Rugby Champions Cup crown.

But that success has to be built on the grassroots and that's where the Ulster Bank Leagues come in.

On Thursday, May 17th, key performers and local club heroes will be recognised at the Ulster Bank League Awards which take place at the Aviva Stadium, with Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt on hand to present the awards to the winners which span across 16 different categories.

There are a few new awards to be won too with the introduction of a new category, the #UBL Try of the Season, which will pick a winner from all the #UBL Tries of the month from during the season.

The Provincial Player of the Year awards will be chosen by public vote.
