Premiership Rugby’s title partner, Gallagher, has enlisted its ambassador Ugo Monye to help launch the public vote for its inaugural Rugby Club of the Season award.

Six grassroots clubs have been shortlisted for the honour, thanks to their significant contribution to their local communities.

Each of the finalists are paired with a Gallagher Premiership Rugby club from their region and rugby fans up and down the country will vote for their winner.

The Battersea Ironsides (paired with Harlequins), Erdington RFC (with Wasps Rugby), Haringey Rhinos Ladies (with London Irish), Kingsbridge RFC (with Exeter Chiefs), Longlevens RFC (with Gloucester Rugby), and Trafford MV RFCC (with Sale Sharks), have all been shortlisted.

A series of Zoom calls, hosted by Gallagher, saw club representatives surprised by Ugo Monye and a series of Gallagher Premiership stars as they explained why they should win the award.
