The All-Ireland League ‘Try of the Month’ competition is back after a successful first season that saw some fantastic scores highlighted in all five divisions of the league.
The ‘Try of The Month’ award proved very popular last season with the monthly shortlists attracting over half-a-million views across Irish Rugby digital channels.
Each month clubs are invited to post the best tries from their All-Ireland League fixtures on their Twitter, Facebook or Instagram pages using the hashtags #AILTry and tagging @irishrugby.
Any try scored in an All-Ireland League match is eligible for entry. The monthly winner will be chosen by a member of the Ireland senior coaching staff.
The scorer of #AILTry of the Month will receive a voucher for €;250 and each of the monthly winners will be entered into a #AILTry of the Season competition with the overall winner decided on a public vote.
Eight monthly winners were shortlisted last season for the Try of the Year award in 2017/18 which was eventually won on a public vote by the September winner, Lansdowne winger Daniel McEvoy.
