URSC: Player of the Season Award 2016/17


The result will be announced at the Ulster Rugby Awards Dinner on 6 May.

The URSC Player of the Season is voted for by URSC members. The winning player receives a magnificent bronze trophy designed and created by local artist Bob Sloan which features a bronze cast of a hand grasping a rugby ball, and was first awarded in 2005 to Matt McCullough.



From this season, the Player of the Season Award will be sponsored by Gardiner Brothers Jewellers of Waring Street, Belfast. Additionally from this season, not only will the Player of the Season receive a superb Ernest Borel Swiss watch courtesy of Gardiners, but as a fantastic bonus for URSC members, all those voting for the winning player will be entered into a draw and one lucky member will also win an Ernest Borel watch courtesy of Gardiners!
