Two All Blacks have been shortlisted for World Rugby's men's and women's player of the year.
New Zealand first five Beauden Barrett and wing Rieko Ioane have nominated in the men's Player of the Year category.
The duo are up against England and British & Irish Lions first five Owen Farrell, Lions lock Maro Itoje and Australia fullback Israel Folou.
Barrett could become just the second player behind Richie McCaw to win the prestigious award two years in a row.
The 26‑year‑old had a standout performance against Samoa at the start of the season but had a mix of form during the Lions series and Rugby Championship.
Ioane is also up for Breakthrough Player of the Year award.
