IRELAND’S JAMIE HEASLIP has won IRPA Try of the Year at the annual World Rugby Awards after topping a public vote online.

The sensational Irish team try against Italy in the Six Nations beat efforts by Japan’s Kaito Shigeno and New Zealand scrum-half TJ Perenara.

No fewer than six Irish players were involved in the 80-yard break before Heaslip held off two Italian defenders to apply the finishing touch.

Heaslip is also shortlisted for World Rugby Player of the Year, with the winner due to be announced later on Sunday night.
