Louis Rees-Zammit has been awarded the Gallagher Premiership try of the season award for his stunning score against Newcastle Falcons.
In the past year, Rees-Zammit, who has a Maltese grandfather, broke into the Wales rugby and gave a valid contribution to the team during last year’s Six Nations Championships.
Since bursting into the scene, Rees-Zammit has stood out for his immense pace on the wing.
The Welsh wing wizard was nominated for two tries at the end-of-year awards ceremony, but his wicked, slaloming run against the Tyneside outfit was voted the best of the season by supporters.
In round 14 of the Premiership campaign, the 21-year-old caught the ball on the edge of his own 22 before breaking through the line, stepping one of the opposition and turning on the afterburners to zip past the clutches of former England full-back Mike Brown.
Saracens flanker Ben Earl was crowned the Premiership’s player of the season and Leicester Tigers’ Steve Borthwick was given the director of rugby of the season accolade. London Irish’s Henry Arundell was named the Land Rover discovery of the season.
George Ford won the Golden Boot award, while Max Malins scooped the top try-scoring gong.
