After a pulsating 2019 Guinness Six Nations Championship came to an end, it’s time to vote for your Player of the Championship.
With sparkling performances scattered over the last seven weeks, here are the six players you can nominate as the standout star of the latest edition of Rugby’s Greatest Championship.
Josh Adams – Wales
The winger ran in the crucial try to seal a famous win against England in Cardiff but he had a brilliant tournament as a whole.
The Welshman scored at key times for his country while running in 257 metres as a whole.
In fact, he ended up top try-scorer for Wales with three scores as he played a key role in his team’s famous Grand Slam.
Tom Curry – England
England may have just lost out to their Welsh counterparts but Curry was a big reason why his side pushed Wales all the way.
The flanker made the most tackles in the tournament with 86, forcing the opposition outfits into five turnovers.
A couple of tries – including one against Wales – capped off a wonderful Championship for the 20-year-old.
Alun Wyn Jones – Wales
The experienced captain led his side to the Grand Slam with a mixture of inspiring leadership, physical play and class.
It’s no wonder that the veteran has been hailed by teammates, opponents and coaches alike after six flawless performances amongst the thick of the action
And with 71 tackles exemplifying his commitment to the cause, this was a vintage display from Jones.
Jonny May – England
The young winger has looked unstoppable throughout the entire Championship, with his agility, speed and intelligence shining through.
May was the top try-scorer in the tournament, crossing six times and defining England’s offensive fluidity with a series of exceptional plays.
With 11 clean breaks and nine defenders beaten, his ability to create a moment of magic out of nothing is something to admire.
Hadleigh Parkes – Wales
An unsung hero in a brilliant Welsh side, Parkes contributed at both ends of the field and delivered at crucial moments.
Whether it be his score within a minute against Ireland or his try which inspired a second-half comeback against France, Wales could always count on Parkes to deliver.
Add in 39 tackles – including a huge hit against Ireland – and it’s clear to see the 31-year-old’s all-round ability which makes him a favourite of so many coaches.
Liam Williams – Wales
The fourth and final Wales player stepped up at a time when Welsh fans feared they had lost a stalwart.
But when Leigh Halfpenny went down injured, Williams stepped up to defy all the doubters.
His ability to carry, relieve any kicking pressure and pass the ball was on show during a virtuoso performance against England.
