Thorley nominated for Gallagher Premiership Rugby Player of the Month for November

Thorley nominated for Gallagher Premiership Rugby Player of the Month for November
Gloucester Rugby flyer Ollie Thorley has been tearing it up in recent weeks, with a number of barnstorming performances, which have seen him named on the 8-man shortlist for the November Player of the Month.

This season is shaping up to be the most competitive yet with just nine points separating Wasps in fourth and Newcastle Falcons in 12th. And while Saracens have won nine from nine and sit pretty atop the table, there is still plenty to play for all 12 Gallagher Premiership Rugby stars.

The fast-paced action continued in rounds seven, eight and nine with a number of individuals standing out for their respective clubs, leading to a final shortlist of seven being named:

  • Mike Brown – Harlequins

  • Santiago Cordero – Exeter Chiefs

  • Alex Dombrandt - Harlequins

  • Faf de Klerk – Sale Sharks

  • Alex Lozowski – Saracens

  • Harry Thacker – Bristol Bears

  • Ollie Thorley – Gloucester Rugby

  • Jack Yeandle – Exeter Chiefs

It is becoming harder than ever to pick one star performer each month, which is why we have opened the voting to the public on the official Premiership Rugby app.


The usual panel of nine judges remain - Nick Mullins (BT Sport), 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 a tenth judge.

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