Leinster starlet Jordan Larmour is among the three candidates nominated for World Rugby's Breakthrough Player Of The Year award.
The 21-year-old burst onto the scene with an explosive start to his Leinster career last season.
He won a PRO14 and Champions Cup double in his first season with the Blues, scoring a fantastic try in the PRO14 Final victory over Scarlets.
He has since gone on to make six appearances for Ireland, playing his part in a Six Nations Grand Slam win and appearing in all three games of the summer tour to Australia.
The IRFU tweeted that it was "great to see Jordan Larmour nominated" after World Rugby announced the contenders today.
Larmour is up for the gong alongside South Africa winger Aphiwe Dyantyi and New Zealand prop Karl Tu’inukuafe.
