Irish Players’ Player Of The Year Revealed

Munster and Ireland’s Conor Murray was voted the Zurich Players’ Player of the Year for 2017 at the 15th annual awards ceremony last night.

The talented nine was outstanding as Ireland claimed their first ever victory over the All Blacks in Chicago and continued his fine form into the Six Nations. The Limerick man also played a starring role with Munster.

The 28-year-old saw off Munster team-mate CJ Stander and the Leinster pair of Robbie Henshaw and Tadhg Furlong for the award, with the latter claiming the The Irish Times Supporters’ Player of the Year.

Leinster’s Garry Ringrose was named as the Nevin Spence Young Player of the Year.

On receiving his award Murray said:

“It has been an incredible season and one that I have thoroughly enjoyed.
“We have had our challenges and some sad days along the way, but to have both Munster and Ireland performing at the highest level has been very satisfying.
“Being recognised in this way by my peers is special – I just hope that I can continue to do my job in the important games that are to come.”
