Maitland and Stander nominated for World Rugby Try of the Year

British & Irish Lions Sean Maitland and CJ Stander have both been shortlisted for World Rugby Try of the Year.

Maitland finished a superb length-of-the-field team try that featured a spectacular Finn Russell pass cutout during Scotland’s Calcutta Cup success in this year’s Six Nations.

Stander scored his five-pointer during Ireland’s barnstorming victory at Twickenham, taking a superb line off a Bundee Aki break, itself created by Johnny Sexton, and powering forward to score by grounding the ball off the base of the post.

New Zealand duo Brodie Retallick and Beauden Barrett have also been nominated, both for tries scored against Australia.

The winner will be announced at the World Rugby Awards on 25 November.
