Gavin Coombes has been named Munster Rugby Men’s Player of the Year for the 2020/21 season.
Coombes, who scored 15 tries in 22 appearances which is a record by any player for a single campaign, becomes the youngest ever winner of the award at just 23.
The versatile forward, who can play at either lock or back row, was a key figure for the province this season as they reached the PRO14 final and only narrowly missed out on a place in the Rainbow Cup final.
His potential has been recognised by Ireland head coach Andy Farrell who has included him in his 37-man squad for the upcoming games with Japan and the USA.
Ben Healy won the Academy Player of the Year award, with Craig Casey named Young Player of the Year.
