Josh van der Flier
Flanker Josh van der Flier’s output this year, including the last month, saw him given the EPCR European Player of the Year gong.
In three knock-out games in May, he scored two crucial tries and was praised by his captain Johnny Sexton after the Toulouse semi-final win, the out-half saying: “I just know the form he has been in and I saw that red scrum cap. I just thought get it to the red scrum cap.”
He also topped the ‘Tackles Made’ chart in the Champions Cup campaign this year while being tied for fourth among his team-mates for clean breaks highlighting his versatility.
