NEWS: The results are in and Stuart Hogg has been voted the 2017 Six Nations Player of the Championship. 

Hogg secured over 24.6 percent of the public vote, the fullback received the backing of 29 734 fans. He has now won the Player of the Championship for the second year in a row.
 
Former South Africa and Italy coach Nick Mallett, together with the tournament's official technology partner, drew up the final shortlist of 12 players. 

The shortlist was based on a specific algorithm created by the technology partner where players at every Six Nations match this year have been awarded (or deducted) points based upon several different performance categories which cover all aspects of the game.
 
Hogg may have been a fair distance ahead, which reflected his second standout Six Nations in a row, but Christiaan Stander came in second place with 14.9 percent of the vote for his significant role within the Irish Squad. 

Third place was awarded to Louis Picamoles with 12.8 percent of the votes, followed by Joe Launchbury (8.9 percent of the vote). Finn Russell's notable performance was recognised with the flyhalf finishing fifth (8.3 percent of the vote), ahead of scrumhalf Conor Murray in sixth with 7.9 percent of the vote.
 
"To receive this award again is an absolute honour, particularly when you take other players on the shortlist into account," said Hogg.

"I'm delighted to be awarded the Player of the Championship Trophy and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted and the fans for their continued support throughout the Championship."
