GARRY RINGROSE AND James Lowe are both in the running for Player of the Year at the 2020 Zurich Irish Rugby Players Awards.

Munster and Ulster also have one representative apiece on the four-man shortlist with Andrew Conway and John Cooney both recognised for their performances this year.

Both Conway and Cooney are also nominated in the Try of the Year category with Conway’s effort in Munster’s Champions Cup clash with Ospreys, and Cooney’s score against Clermont, joined by Robin Copeland’s European try for Connacht against Gloucester.
