Penaud ran in three tries during France’s unbeaten run in November.

His first was a match-winning score against the Wallabies and, although he missed out against the Springboks, he then notched a double against the Brave Blossoms.

Penaud, who succeeds the Irish loose foward Caelan Doris who won in 2021, collected 40 percent of the popular vote which was carried out on social media.

France, who host the World Cup next year, have now won 13th consecutive Test victory, can now claim a record 13 successive Test wins which included the 2022 Six Nations Grand Slam.
