The England back row forward scored one of Exeter’s four tries as they edged out Paris-based Racing 31-27.

No one scored more than Simmonds’ eight tries in this season’s tournament, with the 25-year-old seeing off team-mate Stuart Hogg, Bristol centre Semi Radradra and the Racing pair of Finn Russell and Virimi Vakatawa to win the EPCR European Player of the Year award.

Simmonds is the fourth English player in five years to receive the Anthony Foley Memorial Trophy after the Saracens trio of Maro Itoje, Owen Farrell and Alex Goode.
