Owen Farrell named EPCR European Player of the Year

Owen Farrell capped off a memorable night in Edinburgh by being named EPCR European Player of the Year.
 
The Saracens fly-half scored 13 points as the holders of the European Rugby Champions Cup successfully defended their crown against ASM Clermont Auvergne in Edinburgh. As well as the prestigious accolade, the England international became the first recipient of the Anthony Foley Memorial Trophy and scoops one million air miles courtesy of tournament partners.
 
Farrell emerged as the winner from a shortlist of five players that also included his team-mate Maro Itoje, who won the award in 2016. ASM Clermont Auvergne's Camille Lopez, Leinster Rugby's Garry Ringrose and Munster Rugby's CJ Stander were also nominated.
