Brown shortlisted for ITV Sport Try of the Season
Saracens flanker Kelly Brown has been shortlisted for the ITV Sport try of the season award.
The Scotland skipper finished off a fine team try against Northampton Saints in Saracens 28-24 win at Allianz Park on the 13th April.
Tries from six different players head the list this time around with the winner being announced by Premiership Rugby at a glittering awards ceremony on 15 May at the London Hilton, Park Lane.
Forwards and backs are equally represented in the list as are team and individual scores.
"Stunning one man finishes and tries that travelled through a dozen pair of hands stand side by side on this so I know how hard it was to decide on the winner,” said Phil Winstanley the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby. "Looking at them, any of the top six would be a worthy winner.”
