Connacht and Ireland’s Robbie Henshaw has been named the Nevin Spence Young Player 2015 for an amazing third year in succession, making him the only winner to win three Awards in a row.  Nominated in three categories at the 13th annual Awards ceremony including the Players’ Player of the Year, the Athlone man added to his tally by winning the VW Try of the Year for his try against England in the RBS Six Nations.

Connacht stalwart Michael Swift, who retires at the end of the season, was awarded the Hibernia College Medal for Excellence, which rewards on field effort combined with off field commitment to the game.
