Aviva Premiership - Try of the Season%]
At Tuesday night's Aviva Premiership awards, Saracens hooker Schalk Brits walked away with the honour for Try of the Season.
The former Springbok rounded off a flowing move in Sarries' recent 35-12 victory over Gloucester at Vicarage Road to snatch top prize.
Also in the running were Northampton's Chris Ashton, Leicester's Manu Tuilagi and Gloucester duo Andy Hazell and Lesley Vainikolo.
Other big winners on the night included Northampton flanker Tom Wood, who was named Player of the Season, while Tuilagi was handed the Discovery of the Season gong. Saints boss Jim Mallinder walked away with the Director of Rugby prize.
