EPCR Player of the Year Competition 2017

EPCR European Player of the Year 2017

The nominees for the EPCR European Player of the Year 2017 - presented by Turkish Airlines - have been announced.

A total of 15 players from the European club game have been selected for the vote, which will open on Monday, 3 April, after the quarter-final matches in the Champions Cup and Challenge Cup.

The list will be whittled down to five candidates, with the winner announced as a combination of the fans' vote and the choice of our distinguished panel of rugby experts around the Finals weekend in Edinburgh in May.

Maro Itoje received one million air miles from Turkish Airlines after winning the accolade in 2016 following his Man of the Match performance in Saracens' Champions Cup final victory over Racing 92 in Lyon.

You will be able to make your choice for European club rugby's star performer of the year via epcrugby.com and our official social media channels. If you take part you, too, could win you some exciting rugby prizes.
