Record Test try-scorer Gareth Thomas has been voted Welsh Player of the Year for the second successive season.
The 29-year-old fullback scored his 34th Test try against Italy during the Six Nations, breaking winger Ieaun Evans' national record. If he plays all three Test on next month's tour of Argentina and South Africa, he will reach the 80-cap mark.
Thomas, who leaves the Celtic Warriors to spend next season at Toulouse, won 80 percent of the votes among the Welsh rugby media.
Scarlets fullback Barry Davies was chosen as the Most Promising Player, and Neath-Swansea Ospreys fullback Gavin Henson was named Most Overlooked Player.
Dragons flanker Jason Forster was second to Henson in the voting, and both players have been selected by new national coach Mike Ruddock for next month's tour.
Warriors prop Gethin Jenkins and Scarlets scrum-half Michael Phillips were behind Davies in the most promising player award. All three players are going on the summer tour.

Twelve young people have been selected to follow a one year WRU Coach Core apprenticeship programme. Coach Core was set up by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry as part of the Olympics legacy in 2012 and the Duke of Cambridge was on hand to meet the apprentices on their first day in the job. The programme has been funded by the Hunter Foundation.
The WRU has launched a campaign to create a long term legacy for Welsh club rugby by highlighting the advantages of volunteering. Rhian Edwards, a volunteer at Seven Sisters, has enjoyed many benefits of her volunteering at a grassroots rugby club including being part of the Rugby World Cup volunteer workforce after being nominated by the WRU - and the WRU is asking for more people to develop their 'Welsh rugby roots'.
