The Official Online RBS 6 Nations Store is open. The store has everything you need to get behind your team during the RBS 6 Nations, plus the store is now fully stocked with a much wider range of rugby merchandise.
Healy, who played in four of Ireland’s five RBS 6 Nations fixtures, scoring a try in their opening win over eventual champions Wales, and Zebo are joined in their nomination by Nick Williams.
Zebo also dotted down in the 30-22 defeat of Wales but broke a bone in his foot during Ireland’s next match with England and was not to play again during the RBS 6 Nations.
The award is voted for by the players from the entire professional group from around Ireland with the winner out of Healy, Zebo and Ulster No.8 Williams to be announced on May 8.
And Leinster fly-half and chairman of IRUPA Jonathan Sexton said: “Winning an IRUPA award, which is voted for by the players is a huge mark of respect for any rugby player.
“The Hibernia College Player of the Year award is particularly well regarded by the players, as it rewards consistency and skill at the highest level.”
