Finn Russell missed out on the Player of the Year prize, but there was an award at the Gallagher Premiership's end-of-season awards in London on Wednesday night. 

Russell was part of a four-man shortlist for the award after an excellent debut season for Bath following his move from Racing 92. 

But he was beaten to the top award by Exeter Chiefs' Henry Slade, who also finished the regular season as the league's top points scorer. 

Russell also missed out on a place in the Premiership's team of the season, with Northampton's Fin Smith chosen at fly-half. None of Scotland's exiles won a place in the XV, selected by a panel of journalists and pundits. 

While Russell missed out at the awards, there was recognition for one of his Scotland team-mates.

Saracens back-row Andy Christie won the Community Player of the Season prize for his work with the Saracens Foundation, and for being an ambassador of the Sporting Roots project, which works with refugees in North London. 

After collecting the award, Christie posted on X, formerly Twitter: "Proud of this, thank you @SaracensFdn for allowing me to take part in some of the incredible work you do."

He wasn't at the awards ceremony, but accepting the award on his behalf, team-mate Rotimi Segun, said: “Supporting the community is a massive thing for us, especially through the foundation, and we try and get them down to games and the training ground as much as possible.

"It’s great for them, it’s great for us, it brings everyone closer together.”
