Turnover King: Jac Morgan (Ospreys) - 24 turnovers won

“Delighted to win this award this season after just missing out last year. It’s been a great first season at the Ospreys and hopefully we can all push on next year as a team and put our best foot forward”

Awarded to the player who has won the most turnovers during the regular season, Morgan edged his rivals to scoop the prize for 2021-22.

The Ospreys flanker racked up 24 for the campaign as the Swansea-based region finished top of the Welsh Shield.

He was pushed all the way by Deon Fourie of the DHL Stormers, who finished on 23, while Ulster’s Marcus Rea (19), the Ospreys’ Morgan Morris (17) and the Dragons’ Ollie Griffiths (16) completed the top five.
