Another chance has come for you the fans to have your say in who is named Gallagher Premiership Rugby player of the month for February, with Rory Hutchinson and Cobus Reinach amongst the nominees.
We have had three rounds of Gallagher Premiership Rugby action so far in 2019 and there have been shocks and excitement throughout.
The fast-paced action was evident throughout early January and during the league’s return in February, with a number of individuals standing out for their respective clubs, leading to a final shortlist of 12 being named:
- Ruan Ackermann – Gloucester Rugby
- Mike Brown – Harlequins
- Santiago Cordero – Exeter Chiefs
- Dave Ewers – Exeter Chiefs
- Tom Howe – Worcester Warriors
- Rory Hutchinson – Northampton Saints
- Matt Kvesic – Exeter Chiefs
- Joe Marchant – Harlequins
- Ben Morgan – Gloucester Rugby
- Cobus Reinach – Northampton Saints
- Ed Slater – Gloucester Rugby
- Ollie Thorley – Gloucester Rugby
It is becoming harder than ever to pick one star performer each month, which is why Premiership Rugby have opened the voting to the public on the official Premiership Rugby app this season.
The usual panel of nine judges remain – Nick Mullins (BT Sport), Alastair Eykyn (BT Sport), Mick Cleary (The Daily Telegraph), Sarah Mockford (Rugby World), Jonny Fordham (The Sun), Robert Kitson (The Guardian), Chris Jones (BBC 5 Live), David Rogers (Getty Images) and Tom Hamilton (ESPN) with Premiership Rugby Communications Director Paul Morgan acting as chair – but this season the public will act as a tenth judge.
Your vote and those from the other nine judges will then be tallied to reveal the winner each month.
Voting closing at midnight on Friday (1 March) so to ensure your favourite player wins, get voting on the official Premiership Rugby app. Access the Polls section in the More menu tab and get voting!
