The 22-year-old Roos, who was part of the Stormers team that won the URC Grand Final in Cape Town last weekend, beat Bulls captain Marcell Coetzee and his team-mate Ruan Nortje, the Sharks’ Lukhanyo Am, Vincent Tshituka from the Lions, and teammate Warrick Gelant.


Roos also won three other URC Awards – the Players’ Player of the Season, the Next-Gen Player of the Season, and the Vodacom Fans’ Player of the Season.



“We are delighted for Evan and this award is well deserved given his form and consistency throughout the competition,” said Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber.


“The fact that he received this honour in a competition featuring some of the best players in the northern hemisphere also shows the depth and quality of players we have in South Africa and especially young players.”
