Jonny May, Tom Curry and Mark Wilson have been nominated for England's Men's Player of the Year Award following successful performances in the 2018/19 season.
All the three players were part of England's Six Nations campaign earlier this year where they finished second behind Grand Slam winners Wales. May went on to score six tries in the tournament - the most for any player in this year's edition while Curry and Wilson also had impressive outings.
Curry was delighted with the recognition and is looking forward to the World Cup later this year.
“I am extremely honoured to be recognised in this way by my England teammates and I must thank them for their huge support. It’s been an incredible experience playing for England so far, I have learnt an awful lot and I look forward to what is a massive year for our squad.”
Meanwhile, May thanked his team-mates for the support and is looking to maintain his form in the showpiece event in Japan this year.
“To be nominated by my England teammates is a huge honour and one I am extremely grateful for.
"There’s no better feeling than to have the recognition and support of my peers, and I am excited about the opportunity that lies ahead for our squad later this year.”
“It’s very flattering to be recognised in this way by my England peers," Wilson added.
"It’s been a great year and it’s an enormous privilege to represent my country and everyone who has supported me so far. I look forward to continue playing my part and contributing to our success going forward.”
