Webb gets Pro12 Players award

Date published: May 18 2015

Rhys Webb was named Players' Player of the Season in the PRO12 for his performances with the Ospreys this season.

He is the third Ospreys player to win the gong, succeeding Dan Biggar and Tommy Bowe, and he just edged out Craig Gilroy and CJ Stander for the award.

Webb has had a prolific season, scoring 11 tries in the league, as the Ospreys finished third overall.

Webb had already been named in the Guinness PRO12 Dream Team for the season last week and scooped the Players' Player of the Season award in absentia for his outstanding contribution to the Ospreys season. Rhys returned home to his new baby boy Jesse, born last Friday, after Saturday's win at Connacht.

Sam Hidalgo-Clyne picked up the Young Player of the Season title after not only breaking into and starting in the Edinburgh side, but also into the Scottish national team.

Glasgow boss Gregor Townsend was named Coach of the Season after steering his side into first place in the league. The Warriors put together 16 of wins during the campaign, in what was agreed as a very attractive brand of rugby and finished in first place overall to secure a home tie to face Ulster at Scotstoun next Friday evening.
