Share this article


Leinster backs James Lowe and Garry Ringrose have been nominated for the 2020 Zurich Irish Rugby Players’ Player of the Year Award.

They are joined on the shortlist by Munster winger Andrew Conway and Ulster scrum-half John Cooney.

Blues back row Caelan Doris is nominated for the Nevin Spence Young Player of the Year Award along with provincial team-mate Ryan Baird and former Ireland 7s player Shane Daly who has impressed in the Munster Rugby backfield.

Before the rugby season stalled, the Irish Women’s XV enjoyed some success in the Six Nations with victories over Scotland and Wales.

While the group will finish out the campaign in the coming weeks, the players have nominated Cliodhna Moloney and Linda Djougang for the Women’s XV Player of the Year 2020, while Edel McMahon, who will miss the remainder of the campaign through injury, is also shortlisted.

Louise Galvin, who just recently announced her decision to retire from international rugby, is joined on the shortlist for Women’s 7s Player of the Year by Kathy Baker and Amee-Leigh Murphy Crowe, who has won the award on three previous occasions.

Top try scorer on the Men’s World Series in Ireland’s debut campaign, Jordan Conroy is in contention for the Men’s 7s Player of the Year award alongside last year’s winner Terry Kennedy and Harry McNulty.

Player of the Year nominees Conway and Cooney will also contest the Try of the Year award. Conway’s pace at the Ospreys in the Champions Cup and Cooney’s individual brilliance at home to Clermont in the same competition are joined by Robin Copeland’s last-ditch effort against Gloucester.
