ERC set to celebrate 15 years with prestigious awards

A PANEL of experts, including the Irish Examiner’s Donal Lenihan, have finalised their awards shortlists for a scheme that celebrates 15 years of European club rugby.

The categories include: ERC European Player Award, ERC European Coaching Award, ERC European Fair Play Award and the ERC European Dream Team of the past 15 years as selected by the panel. The prestigious ERC European Dream Team will consist of the most talented players who have featured in ERC’s tournaments since the Heineken Cup kicked off in the 1995-96 season.

The results will be announced in May with the Dream Team as well as the individual winners honoured at the ERC chairman’s dinner in Paris on the eve of the Heineken Cup final at Stade de France on Saturday, May 22. The judging panel was made up of Lenihan, Ian McGeechan, Lawrence Dallaglio, Ieuan Evans, Fabien Galthie, Michael Lynagh, Stuart Barnes, Stephen Jones and Jacques Verdier of Midi Olympique.
