A shortlist of nominations was announced this week in each category – Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year, Newcomer of the Year and also the Outstanding Service Award – and presentations will be held at the Awards Night at Welford Road on Tuesday, April 30 in the company of the full Tigers squad.
The Young Player category is open to players aged under 23 at the start of the season and they’ll be hoping to follow in the footsteps of recent winners Steve Mafi and Manu Tuilagi.
There are three names nominated for the Newcomer Award.
Geordan Murphy, Lewis Moody and George Chuter are among recent recipients of the Outstanding Service award and this year the shortlist is dominated by members of the Tigers forward pack with nominations for Marcos Ayerza, Martin Castrogiovanni and Louis Deacon.
The Supporters’ Awards Night is one of the most eagerly-anticipated events of the season and there are now fewer than 100 tickets remaining on sale from the Tigers ticket office.
Tickets are £40 for season ticket holders, £50 for all other supporters, including a three-course dinner, seasonal highlights, interviews with coaches and players throughout the evening, and the award presentations. Dress code is smart. You might even win the opportunity to hand over an award to one of your Tigers favourites.

Voting for the Try of the Season takes place at the Awards Night event and the shortlist will be revealed soon.
