England wing Joe Cokanasiga on World Rugby 'breakthrough' shortlist
England wing Joe Cokanasiga has been named on a three-man shortlist for World Rugby's award honouring the 'breakthrough' player of 2019.
The 21-year-old has scored seven tries in nine Test appearances since making his debut against Japan last November.
France fly-half Romain Ntamack and South Africa scrum-half Herschel Jantjies are also nominated.
Previous winners include England second row Maro Itoje and New Zealand wings Rieko Ioane and Nehe Milner-Skudder.
Cokanasiga is part of the England squad who have advanced to Saturday's final at the Rugby World Cup but his involvement has been limited to a start in the pool-stage victory over the United States. The Fiji-born back scored two tries in a 45-7 win.
The award will be announced as part of the World Rugby Awards on Sunday, 3 November in Tokyo.
