Wingers dominate the four-man shortlist for the international rugby try of the year award - including two All Blacks in Hosea Gear and Julian Savea.

Gear and Savea are joined by South Africa's Bryan Habana and Julien Malzieu from France.

Gear is nominated for a try he scored against Ireland in June while Savea is nominated after a try against Scotland at Murrayfield earlier this month.

Malzieu's effort came against Italy in their Six Nations encounter in Paris while Habana's try against the All Blacks in Dunedin rounds up the list.
