Zach Kibirige has been shortlisted for the LV= Breakthrough Player Award after his solid display against Saracens at Allianz Park last Sunday.
The England Under-20s star is joined by Exeter Chiefs’ Luke Cowan Dickie on the shortlist, whose impressive performance at the weekend helped the West Countrymen secure five tries in their win over Ospreys.
Despite being on the losing side in the capital, Kibirige was one of only two players to gain over 100 metres in round 3 of the competition thanks to his brilliance with ball in hand. He beat six defenders in all with only two men managing more during the course of the weekend, and made three initial clean breaks in his six carries.
Defenders Beaten: 6
Initial Breaks: 3
