Nominations Revealed For 2017/18 GUINNESS PRO14 Dream Team

The nominations for the 2017/18 GUINNESS PRO14 Dream Team have been confirmed ahead of Monday night’s Awards and Season Launch Party in Glasgow.

With the awards taking place ahead of the new season more than 75 members of the media, including former players and coaches, took part in the voting. For the first time, the top three nominees for each position have been listed in advance of the awards.

With Leinster and the Scarlets reaching the GUINNESS PRO14 final in May, a number of their players have dominated the voting by the media. With voting taking place at the end of the season it allowed for the media to select from more eligible players than ever before as a minimum of nine appearances were required in order to be selected.
