Former Ireland fly-half David Humphreys will be inducted into Irish Rugby's hall of fame on April 23.
He will join Ireland greats such as Peter Clohessy, Mick Galwey and Keith Wood at the Irish Rugby Union Players Association Players' Awards.
Humphreys is the Ireland's second most capped number 10 with 72 caps and has scored 560 international points.
He made his Ireland debut in 1996 and was ever present in the Ireland squad until he announced his retirement from the international game after the 2006 RBS 6 Nations.
Humphreys said: "I am particularly honoured to be accepting this award and joining the former players already inducted into the IRUPA hall of fame. This award means an awful lot to me especially as it comes from players I played with and against during my career."
He began his professional rugby career with London Irish but signed for Ulster at the beginning of the 1998/99 season and went on to captain them.
In September 2004 he became only the fourth Ulster player to reach the 100-cap mark and currently has 145 Ulster caps.
A qualified solicitor Humphreys was educated at Ballymena Academy, Queen's University Belfast and Oxford University.
He received an honorary doctorate from the University of Ulster in December 2003 for services to sport and an MBE in the Queen's New Year's Honours List in January 2004 making his full title Dr David Humphreys MBE.
Mako Vunipola may be his rival for a starting spot in England's front row but Joe Marler is ecstatic to have his fellow loosehead back in the international fold - claiming it will spur him on to even greater heights.
