Fijian-born and Racing 92’s Leone Nakarawa has been rewarded for an outstanding European campaign by being named EPCR European Player of the Year 2018.
Planet Rugby reports, the Fijian helped Racing 92 to the Champions Cup final in which they were narrowly defeated by Leinster.
The outcome was determined by a combination of a public vote and the verdict of a panel of renowned rugby experts.
The Offload King’s success is the first for a player representing a Top 14 club since 2015.
His performances in the Champions Cup received widespread acclaim throughout the season with his try in Racing’s quarter-final win at Clermont voted as the best of the knockout rounds.
