Olly Morgan was chosen by Gloucester Rugby's 1873 Club members as their Worthington's Man of the Match following the Guinness Premiership draw against the Worcester Warriors recently.
Olly was held up after the game with media commitments so his award was picked up by team mates Jake Boer and Rory Lawson. The award was presented by Caroline Search of JS Facilities who, as well as sponsoring the East Stand at Kingsholm, were 1873 Match Sponsors for the day.
Tim Molenaar deserves a mention as he received several votes but Olly was a popular choice amongst the 1873 Club Members.
