Rome [ENA] Antoine Dupont has been crowned 2020 Guinness Six Nations Player of the Championship. Dupont is the first French player to win the prestigious award, having received 46% of the votes. Dupont got one try and four try assists as his electric running in the open field and swashbuckling style impressed fans throughout the Championship. An inaugural Guinness Women’s Six Nations Player of the Championship award

has also been revealed, with England centre Emily Scarratt winning the vote. France scrum-half Antoine Dupont has been unveiled as the 2020 Guinness Six Nations Player of the Championship. Dupont became the first ever Frenchman to be awarded one of rugby’s greatest individual accolades, a prize that has been won by an illustrious list of the game’s top players, including Brian O’Driscoll, Stuart Hogg, Andrea Masi and Shane Williams. Ahead of going to a public vote, a shortlist of six nominees, three French, two English and one Irish, were chosen by an expert panel of distinguished rugby writers, former players and broadcasters from across the six participating countries.

The nominees were: · Grégory Alldritt – France · Antoine Dupont – France · Maro Itoje – England · Romain Ntamack – France · CJ Stander – Ireland · Ben Youngs – England The 23-year-old France scrum-half was a creative hub for his team, a menace with the ball in hand whose athleticism kept defences on the back foot, while also dovetailing effectively with half-back partner Romain Ntamack. No scrum-half made more than Dupont’s 249 metres with ball in hand, while his 54 kicks for 1,543 metres (both Championship highs) proved there is another facet to his game outside his electric running in the open field. Dupont’s Championship-high 12 offloads showcased his ability to keep the ball alive.
