The IRB Awards are given out annually by the International Rugby Board, the worldwide governing body for rugby union, for major achievement in the sport. They were first awarded in 2001. The International Rugby Players' Association also gives out two awards, for Try of the Year and Special Merit, as a part of the programme.
