Leinster's Scott Penny has been voted Guinness PRO14 Next-Gen Star of the Season for 2020-21.
The 21-year-old, who was ruled out of last weekend's PRO14 final win over Munster, was a key member of Leinster’s title-winning team.
The back-row forward featured in 11 games this season and finished joint top try-scorer with nine tries.
Penny’s win means four of the previous five Next-Gen Star awards winners have come from Leinster.
Penny saw off stiff competition from Munster pair Gavin Coombes and Craig Casey, Glasgow Warriors’ Scott Dobie and Scarlets’ Jac Morgan.
A pool of 75-plus media from across the UK, Ireland, Italy and South Africa including reporters, broadcasters, former players and coaches were invited to vote for the Next-Gen Star of the Season award.
