It has to go to Du Preez, he was playing awesome rugby in the Lions Tour and Tri-Nations. Surprised McCaw and Giteau are even in the running.

I'd say its more between du Preez and O'Driscoll, McCaw definitely doesn't deserve it, he had an average Tri-Nations (was outplayed by Brussouw in the SA games) and hasn't been that impressive in the rest of his matches. I feel Richie is nominated by name more than his performances this season.

Richie hasn't been at his best this year, but even so he is still the best player in the world. The award is obviously becoming a joke, just look at the last 2 winners

To be fair Habana was pretty good that year but agree that Williams winning last year was just laughable.

I think that was politics at play there and Williams got it just so they could avoid five SH winners on the trot. McCaw should have been a shoe-in last year, probably more so than this year to be honest.

Du Preez would have to go pretty close I reckon.

Yea I agree.

But at least it makes up for McCaw missing out last year which was a joke.

Captain Fantastic does it again. Lord only knows how we're going to cope when he finally retires but for now, its just a privelege to watch him lead our team.

Yeah but people were thinking the same when Jones retired, then Kronfeld came. Then when Kronfeld ended his career McCaw comes along. Hopefully theres someone else Very Happy . Maybe Whitelock.

Next in line for 7 is probably going to be between Whitelock and Karl Lowe IMO.

I think it was well deserved. Her may have 2 now, but he should probably have 1 or 2 more already and should add a few more in future
