Ardie Savea voted All Blacks player of the year by peers

Ardie Savea has been voted the best All Black of 2019 in this year's New Zealand Rugby Players Association (NZRPA) awards.

The loose forward earned the award after coming out on top of the New Zealand Rugby Players Association polls.


Elsewhere, Ruby Tui took out the women's player of the year award while Sevu Reece won Super Rugby player of the year after his breakout season with the Crusaders.

Savea beat out fellow All Blacks nominees Beauden Barrett, Anton Lienert-Brown, Kieran Read and Codie Taylor.

The 26-year-old had a superb Super Rugby campaign for the Hurricanes and was in top form for the All Blacks in the international season which culminated with the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
