Coaches at the top and bottom of the Premiership are featured in the shortlist for the Director of Rugby of the Season award.

Coaches at the top and bottom of the Premiership are featured in the shortlist for the Director of Rugby of the Season award.

The winner is announced by Premiership Rugby at a glittering ceremony on May 9 at the London Hiton, Park Lane. The event is now sold out.

The current top two sides in the Premiership, Saracens and Leicester Tigers, are recognised on the shortlist alongside London Wasps and London Welsh. The list includes one previous winner, Richard Cockerill of Leicester Tigers, who won the award in 2008-09.

"Premiership Rugby is fortunate to have some of the best coaches in the world working for our 12 clubs," said Phil Winstanley the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby.

"This is good news for the League but made the choice of selecting the shortlist very difficult indeed and it is a credit to all four of these coaches that they made it onto the list.

"If you look at the list of previous winners you will see a who's who of rugby coaching so the winner will be stepping into some very big shoes."

The shortlist is:

Richard Cockerill - Leicester Tigers
Lyn Jones - London Welsh
Mark McCall - Saracens
Dai Young - London Wasps

Premiership Rugby Player of the Season
