French scrumhalf Antoine Dupont has won the Six Nations Player of the Tournament award by a landslide, becoming the first Frenchman to pick up the gong in the history of the competition.
Dupont garnered 46 per cent of the total votes for the award, which amounts to a huge winning margin.

It’s been a remarkable year for the electric nine who has been practically unplayable in all competition in the last 12 months. Together with flyhalf Romain Ntamack, who was also nominated for the prestigious award, Dupont traumatised defences across the 274 days of the elongated competition.
Meanwhile, England’s Emily Scarratt was named the Player of the Championship in the 2020 Womens Six Nations.
