Israel Folau nominated for World Rugby Player of the Year

Folau is one of five world-class players on the shortlist for the prestigious title with the victor to be announced at the World Rugby Awards ceremony at the Salle des Etoiles in Monte Carlo on 26 November.

Folau is the 10th Australian to be nominated for the award since it's creation in 2001 after George Gregan, George Smith, Phil Waugh, Matt Giteau, Chris Latham, David Pocock, Kurtley Beale, Will Genia and Michael Hooper.

He celebrated his 50th test against Samoa with a two-try, 24-point haul and a piece of All Blacks history alongside his brothers, and finished the Lions series as top point-scorer with 41.

Oscar De La Hoya training for comeback fight with Conor McGregor
In a bout that nearly surely would draw considerably less? It's not clear if De La Hoya is being entirely serious. Now, the reality of this fight happening seems slim to none.

The Breakthrough Player of the Year will be contested by three players - Argentina's Emiliano Boffelli, New Zealand winger Rieko Ioane and France centre Damian Penaud.

England captain Sarah Hunter won the award for the best player in the world past year, with four previous English winners in Michaela Staniford (2012), Carol Isherwood (2008), Maggie Alphosi (2006) and Shelly Rae (2001).

The Breakthrough Player of the Year in 2016, Itoje is nominated for this prestigious award for the second year running after continuing his impressive form in 2017.
