With the conclusion of the 2010 rugby season it is time to take a moment to reflect on the year that was and reward those men who excelled during the course of the season.
It was a season that was dominated by the All Blacks who, after having a 2009 to forget, stepped up and reclaimed their spot as the No. 1 team in the world. There were many outstanding games with some very good and exciting rugby being played, making 2010 one of the most memorable seasons in recent history.
Just a quick note, these awards reflect my opinion solely and not necessarily that of the other writers here on Bleacher Report. Looking at each category I tried to put aside any sentiment or past knowledge and judge each player or team based on how they performed in 2010.
