Siva Naulago wins The Famous Grouse Try of the Season

Siva Naulago has claimed The Famous Grouse Try of the Season award, for his stunning effort against London Irish in the mouth-watering 34-34 draw in February. 

The Fijian powerhouse notched his second score of the contest after a brilliant exchange of passes with Charles Piutau, eventually racing away to cross for his third try of the season. Naulago’s effort narrowly edged out that of Bears teammate Semi Radradra against Leicester Tigers for the end-of-season gong, with the latter finishing off a sumptuous breakaway move initiated by Siale Piutau.

Josh Hodge’s try for Exeter Chiefs against Gloucester Rugby came third in the final vote, with the 21-year-old tearing through the smallest of gaps in the Cherry & Whites midfield to crash over and get off the mark in the Gallagher Premiership in style. The defending champions were ultimately defeated 34-18 at Kingsholm, but Hodge’s score ensured there was a positive light shone on an otherwise disappointing result.

The shortlist and winner for The Famous Grouse Try of the Season award were selected by a panel of media professionals alongside more than 1,600 votes from the public as the tenth judge. Sarah Mockford (Rugby World), Craig Swayne (Fab Rugby), Hugh Godwin (The i), Martin Gillingham (Commentator), Stuart Barnes (Sunday Times), Alex Lowe (The Times); Alastair Eykyn (BT Sport), Bobby Bridge (Reach Media and Ugo Monye (BT Sport) were part of a panel chaired by Premiership Rugby’s Communications Director, Paul Morgan.
