Supporters Club Awards For Hayes & Ryan
14th May 2007 By Munster Rugby
The Munster Rugby Supporters Club recently polled all 9000 members asking them to vote for their choice of Young Player Of The Season and Player Of The Season.
For Player Of The Season it was a close affair between David Wallace, Shaun Payne and John Hayes. Having already won the Munster Rugby Player of the Year, John Hayes polled 39% to complete a unique double and be voted 2006/2007 Munster Rugby Supporters Club Player Of The Year.
Hayes received his award from Supporters Club PRO, Glenn Flanagan at half-time of Munster’s final Magners League game against Glasgow Warriors at Musgrave Park.
The Young Player of The Season category was also a tight run affair between Tomas O’Leary, Denis Hurley and Donnacha Ryan.
After some stirring performances culminating in his inclusion in the squad for the Heineken European Cup Quarter Final squad, Donnacha Ryan polled 33% of the vote to win the award and MSC Committee member Elaine Blackshields was on hand to hand Donnacha his award.
