CJ Stander's sensational try against England at Twickenham is one of three nominations for Try of the Year at the 2018 World Rugby awards.

Stander's score, which helped Ireland clinch a Six Nations Grand Slam, was the end result of a perfectly executed move off a lineout, with Tadhg Furlong bamboozling the English defence with a pass to put Bundee Aki away, who then fed Stander for a memorable try.

The glorious score is the sole first-phase try among the nominees, with Sean Maitland's try for Scotland against England and All Black Brodie Retallick's show-and-go versus Australia also up for the award.

It is the second Irish nomination that has been announced ahead of the ceremony on November 25, with Jordan Larmour also shortlisted for Breakout Player of the Year.
