Bristol Rugby winger Tom Varndell has been named Aviva Premiership Rugby Player of the Month for December.
Varndell was judged by a panel of experts as the man who made the biggest impact in the League last month and his role has been lauded by England Rugby World Cup winner Will Greenwood.
“The lad is flying again,” said Aviva ambassador Greenwood, “and his contribution to Jason Woodward’s try at Northampton Saints reinforces his outstanding skills from December.
“If Bristol are to escape then their master poacher needs to bag try after try – it looks like his nose for the try line is sniffing on full power.

“Tom is an absolutely lethal finisher. Control and awareness of his speed and power makes him so difficult to stop.”
Varndell has now scored 90 Premiership Rugby tries in his career, equal with record-holder Mark Cueto.
The winger was involved in a three-way battle for this month’s title, eventually beating his team-mate Woodward and Wasps back-rower Thomas Young to the big prize.
