RPA Players' Player of the Year Nominees

Congratulations to our five nominees for the RPA Players' Player of the Year 2019. 

The RPA Players' Player of the Year Award recognises the outstanding player of the domestic season as voted for by the players. It is the highest accolade in the English game.

Danny Cipriani (Gloucester Rugby): “This is a big honour to be recognised in this way. I have enjoyed my first season with Gloucester and I am excited and motivated by what lies ahead. Thank you to my fellow players for the continued support."

Santiago Cordero (Exeter Chiefs): “I can’t believe this nomination and I would like to thank all my fellow players for the support. I would also like to thank my Exeter teammates and club staff because without them I would not be where I am today.”

Faf de Klerk (Sale Sharks): “It’s a massive honour to be nominated. There are so many outstanding players in the Premiership and to be up there nominated alongside four incredible guys means a lot. I feel extremely blessed.”

Cobus Reinach (Northampton Saints): “I am really humbled and honoured by this special nomination. I feel incredibly blessed for the support and I wish the other nominees the very best of luck.”

Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs): “It’s the highest honour in our game to be nominated for the Players’ Player of the Year and I am extremely proud of the recognition shown to me. To be seen in this light by the guys you play against week in, week out, is a very special feeling and I must thank them for their support.”
