Guinness Six Nations Player of the Championship voting

Guinness Six Nations Player of the Championship voting

After a dramatic Super Saturday saw Wales crowned Grand Slam champions, the shortlist for the 2019 Guinness Six Nations Player of the Championship has been revealed – and as ever, fans will select the winner.

Thanks for all your votes, voting is now closed. Stay tuned to guinnesssixnations.com to find out who won.

Following their Grand Slam heroics, Wales provide four players to the six-man shortlist, with two Englishmen also making the cut after they finished second in the table.

Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones led from the front on the way to his third Grand Slam and makes the shortlist where he is joined by a trio of Welsh backs who all played a key role throughout the Championship.

Josh Adams scored crucial tries against Italy, England and Scotland, and it was his break that started the comeback in Paris, while Liam Williams was assured throughout and finished as the Guinness Six Nations Man of the Match in the win over England.

Hadleigh Parkes is the final Wales player shortlisted. He made a telling contribution in the final win over Ireland with his early try and also put in a try-saving tackle on Jacob Stockdale a week after being named Guinness Six Nations Man of the Match in the win over Scotland.

Meanwhile for England, Jonny May is on the shortlist after finishing as the top try-scorer in the Championship with six tries in total including a first-half hat-trick against France at Twickenham.

Back-rower Tom Curry rounds out the list after a breakthrough campaign where he was excellent at the breakdown and also chipped in with tries against Wales and Scotland.

Williams and May have already won Guinness Six Nations Player of the Round in fan votes this season.

The six players will look to follow in the footsteps of Ireland’s Jacob Stockdale, who won in 2018, succeeding two-time winner Stuart Hogg of Scotland.

Brian O’Driscoll of Ireland holds the record for the most wins with three, having won it in 2006, 2007 and 2009.

The 2019 Guinness Six Nations Player of the Championship shortlist – selected by a panel of experts from the media – now goes to fans for their vote.

Supporters have until Wednesday at 12 noon to select their nominee for the Guinness Six Nations Player of the Championship.
