GLOUCESTER Rugby’s Sione Kalamafoni has been shortlisted for the Green Flag Forward of the Year award.

The versatile back row forward joined Gloucester from Nottingham at the start of the 2012/13 season and has impressed in a number of areas from the pack.

A panel of analysts from Opta studied a number of areas including tackles made, performance at the breakdown, penalties conceded, line outs won, metres gained and carries by all members of the 12 Premiership packs.

Saracens hooker Schalk Brits, Harlequins number eight Nick Easter, Northampton Saints back row forward Samu Manoa, Sale Sharks back row forward Michale Paterson and Leicester Tigers hooker Tom Youngs have also been nominated.

    All Gloucester Rugby supporters will know what a fine player Sione is, but all Gloucester Rugby supporters also know that what the club must consistently do is to ensure that Rupҽrt Hardҽn, our first choice and best tight head prop, starts as many games as possible, otherwise the scrum will end up getting mullered as it did last season every time Rupҽrt was unavailable.
