Saracens’ No.8 Billy Vunipola has been shortlisted for the Premiership’s discovery of the season award.

The 21-year-old is one of six Premiership players nominated for the gong, designed to recognise the outstanding young talent in the league each year.

Vunipola joins director of rugby Mark McCall and backrow Jacques Burger in being nominated for individual awards on the back of a memorable season for Sarries.

The England international will be looking to follow in the footsteps of teammate Owen Farrell, who won the award two seasons ago.
