London Welsh boss Lyn Jones is among the candidates for Premiership rugby director of the season.

Jones features on a short-list of four alongside Leicester's Richard Cockerill, Wasps' David Young and Saracens' Mark McCall.

London Welsh, despite finishing bottom of the Premiership this term, won many admirers for producing a competitive squad that recorded victories over Exeter and Bath.

Welsh also faced the handicap of their Premiership status not being confirmed until late June and then having five points deducted for fielding an ineligible player.

Cockerill and McCall, meanwhile, have both guided their clubs into the Premiership play-offs, while Young oversaw a Wasps revival following a disappointing campaign last year.

The winner will be revealed at an awards dinner at the London Hilton Hotel in London on 9 May.
