These ...of the year things can be rather tedious. Why does every job have to have a "best" - they are all good and well paid for doing it. How are you supposed to quantify what one does better than the others ?

Tedge I also don’t like awards ceremonies, in any industry. If you do well, the rewards come and such is life.


However, Boyd and Gustard have both massively outperformed.

Very strange that Gustard hasn't been nominated

Considering where we were and the direction of travel Chris Boyd has had a remarkable impact. All the others on the short list have done well by continuing and building on recent successes.
For that reason I think our man should take the prize.

Especially when he could yet push on with Quins and win the whole shebang!

I don't know how relevant but these 5 were top of the poll made on the premiership website. I know that is not the be all end all but would of surely contributed.

Always strange that they do these things even before the regular season has finished, let alone playoffs. Not that a DOR's focus is necessarily winning the whole thing, Bristol I would imagine are relatively happy with their season for example so Lam is rightly in the mix.

Like all these things hard to compare apples with oranges because of budgets, experience, squad etc etc. Much like the player awards comparing a Cipriani or Reinach with a prop or lock, the former have a big advantage, especially in supporter voted polls as they are the ones that are always in the highlight reels.

Still, congrats to Boyd, well deserved.

I was merely stating the possibility, not my hope! :-)
