Springbok centre Lukhanyo Am has been named Men’s Fifteens Player of the Year for 2022.

The prestigious award is decided by the country’s professional rugby players, with Am defeating fellow nominees Eben Etzebeth, Malcolm Marx, Evan Roos, and Damien Willemse.

MyPlayers, the players’ organisation, also added two new categories in 2022, with Zain Davids being named Men’s Sevens Player of the Year and Nadine Roos being named South African Women’s Player of the Year.

“Several players approached us after the 2021 MyPlayers Awards about the format and categories of the annual player-led honours,” said Eugene Henning, CEO of MyPlayers. “It was felt that the Blitzboks and Bok Women, sevens and fifteens, didn’t stand a fair chance of being recognised outside of categories such as Best off the Bench, Backline Player, or Most Improved Player of the Year.”

“As a result, almost all existing categories were retired, and only three Players’ Player of the Year awards were introduced.” The players are recognising the status and growth of South African rugby beyond the men’s fifteens game by doing so.”
