London Irish’s James Marshall has been nominated for the 2016/17 Greene King IPA Championship Player of the Year Award.

The 28-year-old is one of three players in the running for the coveted accolade, with Yorkshire Carnegie’s Ryan Burrows and London Scottish’s Mark Bright making up the trio.

Marshall, who can play at either full-back or fly-half, has notched up 55 points in 15 appearances for the club since making the switch to Irish last summer.

“I’m obviously delighted to have been nominated for the award, but there are a number of London Irish team mates that could very easily have been picked,” said the New Zealander.

“All year I feel like we have been building towards something special and hopefully we can finish the season in style. It has been a massive team effort so far this season and I wouldn’t have been put forward for this award without the hard work of the players and staff at the club.”  

The nominees for the Greene King IPA Championship Player of the Year Award in association with the RFU:

Mark Bright   – London Scottish
