TIAR Awards: Overseas Player of the Year--AJ MacGinty

AJ MacGinty is the TIAR Award winner for Overseas Player of the Year. MacGinty won 43% of the vote. Samu Manoa was second in the voting with 38% of the vote. Chris Baumann came in third with 19% of the vote. Coming off a stellar World Cup for the U.S. MacGinty signed with Connacht back in his native Ireland. Immediately he made an impact on the team as they registered their best season to date, claiming the Pro12 championship. Foreign player restrictions meant that MacGinty couldn't stay with Connacht so he made the move to Sale. Since making the move he's been a consistent part of the Sharks. All in all, it's been one of the best year's for an American in Europe.
