World Rugby Awards 2020 will select the best in eight special nominations
This year the winners of the title “Player of the Year”, “Coach of the Year” and “Team of the Year” will not be determined.
Instead, fans and professionals were offered 8 special main nominations. The winners in two of them – the men’s and women’s conditional teams of the decade – will be selected by a special jury.
There are 6 nominations left for the online voting of fans:
Men’s Rugby 15 Player of the Decade
Women’s Rugby 15 Player of the Decade
Men’s Rugby 7 Player of the Decade
Women’s Rugby 7 Player of the Decade
Decade attempt at men’s rugby 15
Decade attempt at women’s rugby 15
Online voting will take place from 14 to 25 October.
The contenders will be the winners of previous years, with the exception of the category: Women’s Rugby 15 Player of the Decade. Her shortlist will be compiled by interviewing national team players.
The winners in the nominations will be announced at a special ceremony on December 7, 2020.
