The Springboks star scored the try against Ulster in the opening round of the tournament, collecting a pass from Thomas Ramos before beating two defenders, kicking over another and collecting after two bounces to slide over the whitewash in remarkable fashion.
The decision of former Munster back-row Quinlan, in combination with the votes of European Rugby fans, saw Kolbe come out on top, ahead of Antoine Dupont’s sizzling score in the Round of 16 against Munster Rugby.
Speaking about the tries nominated for the prize, Quinlan said: ‘It had outstanding skill, pace and individual brilliance from Cheslin Kolbe to score.’
