There is still time to vote for Exeter Chiefs supporters to register their support for Jack Nowell to win this season's LV= Breakthrough Player Award.

The talented Cornishman is one of 10 players who are currently battling it out to win the accolade following some notable displays in this season's competition.

Equally at home at full-back or on the wing, 19-year-old Nowell has constantly been a blight on opposition defences this season and was regarded as the top player in round four as his side saw off a strong Northampton Saints.

The England Under-20s international averaged a gain of almost 100 metres per game in his four appearances, in which he played 320 minutes of rugby. He is the LV= Cup’s top metre-maker and has defeated more defenders than any other player.

To vote for Nowell, all you have to do is click here before voting closes at midnight on March 10.

Scarlets Nowell Preview stdLaunched last season, the LV= Breakthrough Player Award 2011-12 unearthed some future international stars and this season’s shortlist of nominees is no different.

Designed to recognise the outstanding young players competing in the LV= Cup, a shortlist of ten nominees from this seasons tournament has been drawn up.

Eight of the nominees have been chosen based on their match statistics during the pool stages of the tournament. Completing the shortlist of ten nominees are two players that registered incredible overall statistics throughout all four initial rounds of the tournament.

Following in the footsteps of last year’s victor Jonny May (Gloucester Rugby), the 2012-13 LV= Cup Breakthrough Player will donate £1,000 to a grassroots rugby initiative of his choice, as well as taking home the LV= Breakthrough Player trophy.

The winner will be announced prior to the LV=Cup Final and LV= will donate £1,000 to a grassroots rugby initiative of their choice.
