Hail Soane Tonga’uiha, the Saint who should have been a winner


Stand by for the awards ceremony season. Next Tuesday the Aviva Premiership Player of the Year Award winner will be announced, barely 24 hours after the Rugby Players’ Association has confirmed its own shortlist. It will be interesting to see if the two bodies come up with a similar roll of honour because, in my book, the five-man list of nominees for the Premier Rugby prize lacks at least three absolute certainties.
