Ireland and Leinster prodigy Jordan Larmour has been nominated for World Rugby’s Breakthrough Player of the Year award after an incredible 12 months for both club and country.
Larmour burst onto the scene last season with an incredible solo-try against Munster in Thomond Park that led to him becoming a regular for Leinster as they went on to win an unprecedented Champions Cup and PRO14 double.
His form also saw him called up to the Ireland squad, playing a role as they won the Six Nations Grand Slam and defeated the Wallabies in a three-Test series back in June.
Larmour has been nominated alongside two other players – South Africa star Aphiwe Dyantyi and New Zealand prop Karl Tu’inukuafe.
