Glittering Prizes

The World Rugby Awards were dished out last night and, not surprisingly, New Zealand dominated the prizes.

It wasn’t quite as good as last year but the All Blacks did pick up the top three awards.

England did okay with Maro Itoje being named ‘Breakthrough Player of the Year’ and Sarah Hunter getting ‘Women’s Player of the Year’

‘Try of the Year’ was given to Ireland’s Jamie Heaslip for this spectacular number –

To be fair Jamie only had to catch and run a few yards (albeit carrying a winger on his back) – but I still think he owes some of the others a few beers!
