EPCR Release European Player Of The Year Nominees
The EPCR have released their European Player of the Year shortlist.
Unsurprisingly no Guinness PRO12 players make the list, due to the poor outing from the clubs this season in the Champions Cup. Once again England exile Steffon Armitage is nominated accompanied by fellow Englishmen, Jack Clifford, Elliot Daly, Owen Farrell, Maro Otoje and George Kruis.
Ulster bound Charles Piutau has also been nominated for his impressive performances with Wasps this season. World player of the year Dan Carter also makes the list as he looks to add to his impressive tally of awards this season.
