Danny Cipriani is among nominations for the Rugby Players’ Association players’ player of the year.
The RPA announced a short-list of five, with Cipriani being joined by Exeter and England centre Henry Slade, Slade’s fellow Exeter back Santiago Cordero, Sale Sharks scrum-half Faf de Klerk and Northampton number nine Cobus Reinach.
“This is a big honour to be recognised in this way,” Cipriani said on the RPA website.
“I have enjoyed my first season with Gloucester and I am excited and motivated by what lies ahead. Thank you to my fellow players for the continued support.”
