England duo George Ford and Jonathan Joseph have each been nominated for three RPA Players' Awards.

The Bath Rugby pair have made the shortlists for Players' Player of the Year, the Young Player of the Year and England Player of the Year.

Both competitors performed for the Red Rose in the Six Nations earlier this year, and with Bath, they are currently second in the Aviva Premiership table, five points adrift of leaders Northampton Saints.

Meanwhile, England legend Jonny Wilkinson will be inducted into the RPA Hall of Fame following a successful career, which included an impressive display in his nation's 2003 World Cup triumph.

The awards ceremony will be held at Battersea Evolution on May 13.
