Saracens star receives Anthony Foley Memorial Trophy.

Owen Farrell capped off a memorable night at BT Murrayfield by being named EPCR European Player of the Year - presented by Turkish Airlines.

The Saracens fly-half scored 13 points as the holders of the European Rugby Champions Cup successfully defended their crown against ASM Clermont Auvergne in Edinburgh. As well as the prestigious accolade, the England international became the first recipient of the Anthony Foley Memorial Trophy and scooped one million air miles courtesy of tournament partners, Turkish Airlines.

Farrell emerged as the winner from a shortlist of five players that also included his team-mate Maro Itoje, who won the award in 2016. ASM Clermont Auvergne's Camille Lopez, Leinster Rugby's Garry Ringrose and Munster Rugby's CJ Stander were also nominated.

There was an unprecedented level of engagement during the public vote which was combined with the views of a distinguished panel of rugby experts to produce the season's winner.

This poll has now closed. We will announce the winner after the Champions Cup Final.
