URC | Jack Crowley named Players’ Player of the Season

Munster Rugby’s Jack Crowley has been named the BKT United Rugby Championship's Players’ Player of the season, capping off an incredible awards season for the young playmaker.

The 24-year-old adds the award to his Next-Gen Player of the Season prize, as well as also being named in this season’s Elite XV.

Crowley has been ever-present for Munster Rugby this season, cementing his position at fly-half while guiding them to the top of the table during the regular season.

This prestigious award was voted on by the Captain and Vice-Captain of all 16 teams, with all nominees again required to have made a minimum of nine appearances.

In voting for Crowley, one of his peers said: “He has been great for Munster the whole season and pivotal at the back end of the campaign, bringing them to top of the table.”


Crowley follows in the footsteps of fellow Ireland international Dan Sheehan who was named Players’ Player of the Season last year and DHL Stormers star Evan Roos who won the prize in 2021/22.
