WORCESTER Warriors flanker Ted Hill has been shortlisted for the Premiership Cup Breakthrough Player award.

Using OPTA match statistics, a forward and back from each round along with two players with outstanding overall competition statistics will form a 10-man shortlist which will be submitted to a fan vote.

Hill has been nominated after his fine display in last Saturday's 31-12 victory over Leicester Tigers at Welford Road where he scored a try and set-up Bryce Heem for his second.

The 19-year-old also made eight carries and two breaks, gaining 39 metres in the process, and put in 19 tackles.

The video clip below, courtesy of Alex Thomas (alexthomas86), shows Hill's crunching tackle on Tigers number eight Fred Tuilagi at the start of the second period.

Sale Sharks’ Arron Reed was selected along with Hill.

The duo join Bath's Josh Bayliss and Northampton Saints’ James Grayson who were shortlisted after round one of the competition.

Launched in 2012, the Breakthrough Player Award celebrates and recognises players under the age of 23 who have stood out in the tournament, with previous winners including the likes of Jack Nowell, Jonny May, Tom Collins and Adam Radwan.

This year's winner will be announced prior to the Premiership Cup final, with the recipient also receiving a Promaster Tough watch courtesy of Citizen, while Gilbert, Official Ball and Rugby Clothing Partner will supply £1,000 worth of kit to a grassroots club of the winner’s choice.
