December saw plenty of action at both ends of the table with Exeter Chiefs leading the way into the New Year, with Northampton Saints one point further back in second.

But the competitiveness doesn’t stop there with just a single point separating Gloucester Rugby in third and Harlequins in eighth.

It is no surprise therefore that 11 players are on shortlist for the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Player of the Month for December.

It is becoming harder than ever to pick one star performer each month, which is why this season we are once again opening the voting to the public on the official Premiership Rugby app this season.

The usual panel of ten judges remain – Nick Mullins (BT Sport), Jill Douglas (Broadcaster), Alastair Eykyn (BT Sport), Mick Cleary (The Daily Telegraph), Sarah Mockford (Rugby World), Jonny Fordham (The Sun), Robert Kitson (The Guardian), Chris Jones (BBC 5 Live), David Rogers (Getty Images) and Tom Hamilton (ESPN) with Premiership Rugby Communications Director Paul Morgan acting as chair – but this season the public will act as an 11th judge.

Your vote and those from the other ten judges will then be tallied to reveal the winner each month.

Voting closes at 10am on Friday so to ensure your favourite player wins, get voting on the official Premiership Rugby app. Access the Polls section in the More menu tab and get voting!
