The 23-year-old's string of standout displays in recent weeks has improved his chances of earning a call-up to Eddie Jones' England squad for the climax to the Six Nations against Italy and Autumn Nations Cup.

Gloucester wing Louis Rees-Zammit was named the Young Player of the Year following his breakthrough Premiership season, which earned him a Wales call up in January.

The 19-year-old finished the season with an impressive haul of 10 tries, signing a new long-term deal with Gloucester in the process.

"It's been a bit of a shock to play in the premiership and then all of a sudden to win this is amazing," said Rees-Zammit.
