World Rugby Awards

The World Rugby Awards are given out annually by World Rugby (until November 2014, known as the International Rugby Board), the worldwide governing body for rugby union, for major achievement in the sport. The idea of rewarding excellence in rugby were disclosed in 2001 following the Annual Meeting of the International Rugby Board Council in Copenhagen,[1] and the first ceremony was first awarded later that year.[2][3] The International Rugby Players' Association also gives out two awards, for Try of the Year (since 2007) and Special Merit, as a part of the programme.
