SEVENS PLAYER OF THE YEAR: World Rugby has revealed the shortlist for the Sevens Player of the Year.

The awards will be presented at the World Rugby function in Monte Carlo on November 26.

WORLD RUGBY MEN’S SEVENS PLAYER OF THE YEAR NOMINEES

PERRY BAKER (UNITED STATES)

The oldest of the nominees at 31, Perry Baker enjoyed a season to remember in 2016-17, topping the charts for tries and points scored with 57 and 285 respectively. The USA Eagles flyer has electric pace and can make something out of nothing, but has now developed the all-round game to go with his natural speed.

ROSKO SPECMAN (SOUTH AFRICA)

A key figure in South Africa’s dominant season as they claimed a first series title since 2008-09, Rosko Specman is blessed with an unbelievable step and a turn of pace that leaves opponents clutching at thin air. Previously an impact player off the bench, the 28-year-old has now become a must-have player in the starting line-up.

JERRY TUWAI (FIJI)

Fresh from winning an historic Olympic gold medal in Rio, Fiji playmaker Jerry Tuwai was carving open defences at will with his vision and step, making the most of his diminutive frame to dart through gaps. The season may not have been a successful one for Fiji, but the 28-year-old always played with a smile on his face.
