Pawn Stars are a popular social media platform for Irish players.
The players use the platform to share their favourite pictures, videos and moments with their followers.
On Sunday night, they announced that Pawn Star was pleased to announce the “Best Irish Man” of the year.
The award is given annually to the best Irishman on the internet.
The ceremony was broadcast live on RTÉ’s Live at 5 and RTÉ One’s Six O’Clock News.
The award went to Liam Collins, who was voted in by his peers as the best player of the season, and was the winner of the Pawns Stars award for the year with over 6 million followers.
Collins had a strong year, scoring 17 tries in 20 matches, including three in the Guinness Pro12.
“The PawnStars are very proud to have received the Best Irishman Award for the 2016/17 season,” said Pawnstars Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Gannon.
“Heading into the season we had some great performances from our team, the most memorable of which was his try to set up the winning try of the Irish championship.
It was a very successful year for him and he will be sorely missed.”
Gannon said that the Pawsterns, a popular Irish pub in London, was one of the reasons for the award being given.
“I am proud to be part of the team that received this prestigious award, and I’m sure it’s going to go down as one of Liam’s highlights of the campaign,” said Gannon in a statement.
“Our team was on the right path in the first half of the competition, but we made a big mistake in the second half, losing our confidence and playing out of our minds.
Liam was a big part of that and we’re proud to see him win this award for our players.”
Gilly had another strong season with the Paws, scoring 14 tries in 13 matches and also winning the Guinness Pros of the Season award.
“I’m so proud to announce Liam’s nomination for the Best Player of the Series in the 2017 Guinness Pro 12.
It’s a massive honour to be recognised with the award,” said the 29-year-old in a post on his Instagram account.
“It’s not easy to win this title and I think Liam has shown he can win this prize, it’s just a matter of how.”
