NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 8/05/2017

Ulster winger Charles Piutau has been named players' player of the year at the Pro12 season-ending awards in Dublin.

Seventeen-Test All Blacks back Piutau capped a vibrant season in which he scored six tries and led the championship in a number of attacking statistics.

The 25-year-old was also named in the European league's dream team, along with former Crusaders first five-eighth Tyler Bleyendaal, who plays for Munster.

Piutau left New Zealand rugby in 2015, playing a season for English club Wasps in which he also impressed, scoring eight tries.
