Garry Ringrose and Caelan Doris have received the end of season awards from their fellow Leinster players as they retained their PRO14 title.

The formal Leinster Rugby Awards Ball was cancelled in May due to Covid-19 but the Province announced the winners on Wednesday.

Ringrose was named Leinster Players’ Player of the Season for his outstanding contributions which culminated in leading Leinster out at the Aviva Stadium for the final of the Guinness PRO14.

Doris picked up the Leinster Young Player of the Season for 2019/20 after an impressive campaign which also saw him make his debut for Ireland in the Six Nations.

Speaking on behalf of the squad Leinster captain Johnny Sexton said, "Both Garry and Caelan have been superb all season and thoroughly deserve their awards.

"Naturally, we would love to celebrate their achievements with family and friends at the end of season awards but we understand we have to keep playing our part.

"It was still nice to have a moment with the two lads at the team meeting and to surprise them with their awards.

"Both of them have been brilliant for us in a hugely demanding season and not once did they let their standards slip.

"They are two players that any young boy or girl should aspire to be like as they play the game in the right spirit, enjoy it and drive the standards day in, day out here in Leinster."

Leinster Head Coach Leo Cullen added, "We play a team sport so it is all about the collective effort and reward but I think when you have been recognised by your peers, by your fellow players with an award like this it is special.

"They see your efforts day in, day out and understand what you bring to the environment, not just during the 80 minutes, so it means that little bit more I think.

"I know the regard both Garry and Caelan are held by the playing group and it is shared by the coaching staff. Two great players but special men also. The recognition is richly deserved."

The Leinster Women’s Player of the Season was presented to Blackrock College RFC’s Hannah O’Connor at a cap presentation ceremony hosted by Bank of Ireland last November following the successful defence of their interpro title.
