Adams on shortlist for prestigious award

Aaron Wise 16th Nov, 2016

WINGER Josh Adams has been shortlisted for the Anglo-Welsh Cup ‘Breakthrough Award’ following his sublime double try-scoring performance against Bristol.

As well as bagging a brace of tries, the 21-year-old also provided an assist, made three clean breaks, covered 95 metres and completed all of his tackles in an exceptional all-round display.

The youngster has been nominated alongside Bath’s Zach Mercer, after the duo were judged by the statisticians at Opta to have made the biggest impact in Round One of the tournament.

Launched in 2012, the award is open to the brightest under-23 talent in the Anglo-Welsh Cup, with shortlisted players being named after each round.

The winner will receive the latest Citizen Skyhawk A-T watch and Gilbert will supply £1,000 worth of kit to a grassroots club of their choice.

A public vote will decide the overall winner ahead of the Anglo-Welsh Cup final on Sunday, March 19 at the Twickenham Stoop.
