The Judging Panel

How the Judging Panel has been selected

The Crabbie’s National Rugby Awards’ judging panel comprises of four high profile personalities from the world of rugby, collectively representing expertise from every facet of the game. This is crucial since only judges with direct knowledge and understanding of rugby will be asked to join the judging panel and assess the final nominees.

The Judging Process

The final nominees will be decided on a judging day at Twickenham and without reference to the organisers; The judges will mark every element of the final nominees from each category, We believe that this ensures that all winners are fairly chosen in a process which is totally transparent and robust. The winner of each category will not be revealed until the award’s is presented. The six finalists from each category will be revealed on the website six weeks before the awards and the nominees will be informed directly by the event organisers.
