Citizen Try of the Season Shortlist announced

Six stunning tries have been shortlisted for this season’s Citizen Try of the Season award.

With 616 tries scored in the 2015-16 Aviva Premiership Rugby Season, the judging panel had a hard task but sensational scores by players from Harlequins, Leicester Tigers, Northampton Saints, Sale Sharks and Worcester Warriors have been chosen as the cream of the crop.

The Citizen Try of the Season shortlist is:

  • Peter Betham, Leicester Tigers (v Gloucester Rugby in Round 19)
  • Ross Chisholm, Harlequins (v Gloucester Rugby in Round 7)
  • Sam James, Sale Sharks (v Northampton Saints in Round 3)
  • George Pisi, Northampton Saints (v Gloucester Rugby in Round 22)
  • Harry Thacker, Leicester Tigers (v Northampton Saints in Round 20)
  • Cooper Vuna, Worcester Warriors (v Saracens in Round 22)

The shortlist was compiled by a panel of media professionals – Ben Coles (Planet Rugby), Jill Douglas (Freelance), Alastair Eykyn (BT Sport), Chris Hewett (Freelance), Chris Jones (BBC Radio), Stephen Jones (Sunday Times), Robert Kitson (The Guardian), Sarah Mockford (Rugby World), and Nick Mullins (BT Sport). They were joined by Paul Morgan (Premiership Rugby's Communications Director) who chaired the panel.

The winner will rub shoulders with the biggest names in English rugby at a glittering ceremony at the London Hilton, Park Lane presented by BT Sport's Craig Doyle.
