THE SIX NOMINEES have been announced for the 2020 RTÉ Sport Team of the Year award.

The awards takes place this Thursday night with four Gaelic Games sides in the running along with one rugby team and one soccer outfit.

There are two Dublin selections with Dessie Farrell’s Gaelic football team nominated after they won the county’s sixth All-Ireland title in a row while the ladies football side managed by Mick Bohan are also included after they completed four-in-a-row last December.

The Kilkenny camogie team are nominated after they ended a run of All-Ireland final heartbreak with their title win over Galway while the all-conquering Limerick hurlers are selected after their league, Munster and All-Ireland victories last year.

Leinster’s rugby dominance continued in 2020 when they won a first ever three-in-a-row in the history of the Pro14 and also eclipsed their own record of ten consecutive wins but triumphing in all 17 matches.
