Corporal Josh McNally has been named the RFU Championship Player of the Year.

The RAF rugby union star has been in top form for London Irish and has helped the team to promotion from the division.

The 28-year-old was part of the RAF team who lost their Inter Services crown to the Army in April.

The season marks his last in a London Irish shirt as he will complete a move to Bath in the summer.

McNally posted an emotional Twitter goodbye to the fans of the club after his final game last month.

McNally has been in good form over the past 12 months, resulting in a call up to the England training squad.

McNally had to take time away from the game in 2017 after doctors found a hole in his heart, which was repaired with minor surgery.

On his return, he became a key player for London Irish and captained the team on several occasions.

With the move to Bath, Cpl McNally will link up with Army star Semesa Rokoduguni who has played for the professional side since 2012.
