The nominees for the 2017 Men's Player of the Year have been selected, and there is a mixture of both northern and southern hemisphere talent on the shortlist.
British and Irish Lions duo Owen Farrell and Maro Itoje lead the charge after a trophy-laden season for both club and country, following the drawn series against the world champion All Blacks.
Last year's Men's Player of the Year Beauden Barrett is once again nominated, as is team-mate Rieko Ioane who made his debut in the squared series against Warren Gatland's men.
The final nominee is try-scoring Wallaby Israel Folau, who has been hugely impressive in the No 15 jersey for the men from down under.
