Wasps and England fly-half Danny Cipriani has been nominated in both main categories for this year's Professional Rugby Players' awards.

Cipriani, 20, is in the running for players' player of the year and top young player after a fine season.

The players' player award also sees Paul Sackey, Riki Flutey, Olly Barkley and James Simpson-Daniel nominated.

In the young player category, Cipriani joins James Haskell and Tom Croft, plus Danny Care and Chris Robshaw.


Cipriani said: "I am really humbled to have been nominated alongside such outstanding players in both categories.

"While there is still some unfinished business this season, it has been a remarkable year for me, and to be nominated by my fellow players for these awards is a tremendous honour."

The 10th annual PRA awards will be presented in central London on 21 May.
