CONNACHT RUGBY: GALWAY DAILY PLAYER OF THE YEAR SEMI-FINALS

Our quarter-final polls to pick the Galway Daily Connacht Rugby Player of the Year ended on Tuesday night and 12 players have advanced to the semi-finals. 

Bundee Aki topped the poll with 61% in his quarter-final followed by Jarrad Butler (60%) and Kieran Marmion (57%).

The other quarter-final winners were Tiernan O’Halloran (56%), Finlay Bealham (50%), Jack Carty (50%) and Thomas Farrell (43%).

The seven quarter-final winners and five best runners-up go through to the semi-finals.  This means that Quinn Roux (40%), Caolin Blade (38%), Shane Delahunt (36%), Matt Healy (35%) and John Muldoon (31%) are also in the final 12.

Ultan Dillane and Eoghan Masterson were the unlucky runners-up to lose out.  And from the other 14 players eliminated in the first round, Players’ Player of the Year Tom McCartney was the surprise exit.

The polls for the semi-finals are now online and will remain for 36 hours.  The three winners and the best runner-up (based on percentage gained) will advance to Friday’s final.

The quarter-final results and semi-final groupings are listed below.
