We Finally Know How Many Man Of The Match Awards CJ Stander Has Won


CJ Stander knows a thing or two about winning man of the match awards.

The Munster back-row has made it a bit of a habit of being an absolute wrecking ball on the pitch and is usually rewarded with the prestigious award.

Stander was once again named MOTM last night in Munster’s Champions Cup win over Racing, and to be fair no one was complaining.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – will start on June 25 and run for the duration of the Lions Tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE


The Ireland forward once again played out of his skin, and was ket in the southern province’s win, that secured them a home quarter final.

Now to the burning question, how many MOTM awards has Stander won? A staggering 18 is the answer. In 92 games, 72 of those being starts, Stander has won 18 MOTM award. That’s one in every four games. What a talent.
