“Gallagher Premiership Rugby has never been more compelling and unmissable than this season with more than six tries a match and almost 50 per cent of matches finishing within seven points.

"Those statistics and the current philosophy of the Premiership clubs is driven by the coaches on this list and those impressive figures who didn’t make it.

"I look forward to seeing which of the list is named London Pride Director of Rugby of the Season on Tuesday.”
