Ollie Lawrence has been named the Premiership player of the season after a standout campaign for Bath.

The 23-year-old England international joined Bath in October on a short term loan following the collapse of Worcester Warriors.

BBC reporters that Ollie signed a long term deal with the club just over a week later.

Saracens’ Mark McCall was also named the league’s Director of rugby of the season, after he led the club to the top of the table.

London Irish flanker Tom Pearson won the breakthrough player of the season award after helping the club to fifth place – their highest place in the table since the 2008-09 campaign.
