jonny wilkinson?! are there no other players up there? im just trying to figure out who is the worse player sexton or toby flood, both amazingly abyssmal.

Nope, Leinster fan and season ticket holder. But being realistic, Ferris and Pienaar have been much more impressive than Sexton and Kearney
Posted 23:43 16th May 2012
Tight one this. From an Irish view could be Kearney or Ferris, Kearney has been outstanding this year as has Ferris, based on all performances I would go with kearney bu my heart and a view to Europe only would push me to Ferris. That tackle against Leicester, christ on a bike!
But sadly( gladly) have to say Pienaar should take this. He has steered and kicked Ulster to Twickenham on Saturday. Agree with the Wilkinson comments, what a bizarre inclusion!
Sexton good year but not the leading light in the tournament, and blametheref... ah you know how to finish that that sentence by now. Enjoy the game on saturday!

She is South African and lives in Italy. Plenty of opportunities for her already around.
At club level, yes. At test level, not sure.

Why has JW even been mentioned?
Posted 13:40 16th May 2012
I'm a Leinster fan but id say Ferris and Pienaar are in front so far id say only because Leinster players are all performing brilliantly yes kearney and sexton are standing out more but for overall contribution to the team Ferris and Pienaar have carried the Ulster team forward almost on there own!
Posted 09:08 16th May 2012
an Ulster fan are we Rocky? Just a wild guess.
and yes I am a Leinster fan.
Posted 09:04 16th May 2012
It's gotta be either Ferris or Pienaar, they've both been incredible for Ulster. Kearney has played well, but I think Pienaar and Ferris are more likely than him. Sexton has been great throughout but not quite player of the tournament.
Finally, I have no idea why Wilkinson is there. Apart from the game against Harelquins, during which he was phenomenal, he has been quite poor and definitely nowhere near the best in Europe. Given the fact that he played against such poor sides I would have expected him to have been more impressive, given the calibre of player he is (or at least was).
All in all I reckon Pienaar will edge it over Ferris.

Kearney deserves it on form but all in all Insee Sexton winning it for his overall contribution
Posted 23:45 15th May 2012
Pienaar gets my vote. He has been absolutely nerveless this season. The consistency of his execution in all aspects of the game is astounding.
As a Leinster fan I'd love to see it go to one of our pair but Pienaar is a phenomenon.
Posted 22:33 15th May 2012
I'd say Ferris will take this one. Rob Kearney has been on fire lately, but in my opinion, he's still miles off his best form. Same with Sexton, he played some great Rugby last year, but hasn't hit 100% this season. Pienaar has been good, but not as good as the others. Wilkinson is a write off, there's no reason why he should be there.
Posted 21:24 15th May 2012
Didn't he get the winning drop goal?
Posted 20:33 15th May 2012
It's real close but bar mishap I'd go for ferris...
Posted 20:23 15th May 2012
I'm a huge Leinster fan, but I got to say Ferris, man is just incredible player. Kearney would be by #2 pick.
Posted 19:25 15th May 2012
Ferris of Kearney for me. Hopefully Kearney can finally win a HC.
Posted 18:50 15th May 2012
Has to be Sexton, all round the best 10 in the NH for the past 3 years
Posted 18:44 15th May 2012
As a Leinster Fan i'd love to see Sexton take it but i think it should go to Ferris. The guy has been immense. In the Semi against Edinburgh he was being held together with tape and still carried the team through. I saw carried the team in the best of manners as he was leading them from upfront and setting the bar for them.

fat chance, once the ladies get a taste of Sexyboy they're hooked for life! you might as well just accept it now ;-)
why is wilkinson in the shortlist? he almost cost toulon the semi with his wayward kicking and he only started about 3 games in the group stage against mickey mouse opposition
