Player of the Year nominations surprise

The nominees for IRB Player of the Year were released yesterday evening, with the usual suspects in Richie McCaw and Dan Carter leading the race. The other two entries were slightly more surprising, with ex-Sharks flyhalf Fred Michalak getting the nod and England flyhalf Owen Farrell completing the list.

Richie McCaw is in line for his fourth win, being the only person to have won the award more than once, while Dan Carter will become the second player to win multiple awards should he get the nod.

Michalak made his return to international rugby after missing out on two years, being recalled by newly appointed French coach Philippe Saint-Andre, and made a massive impact during the June Internationals in Argentina and subsequently during the end of year tour. Should Michalak win, he will be the second French international in two years to win the award after Thierry Dusatoir won it last year.

The winner of this awards and others will be announced on 3 December.
