Try of the Season nomination for Abendanon

7 May 2014

Nick Abendanon's stunning solo effort against Exeter Chiefs back in February has been nominated for the ITV Sport Try of the Season.

Six different players are up for the award, with forwards and backs and teams and individual scores equally represented. The winner will be announced at the Premiership Awards on Thursday 15th May.

"Stunning one man finishes and tries that travelled through a dozen pair of hands stand side by side on this so I know how hard it was to decide on the winner," said Phil Winstanley the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby. "Looking at them, any of the top six would be a worthy winner."
