France’s Gabrielle Vernier named player of the Women’s Six Nations
France centre Gabrielle Vernier has been named TikTik Women’s Six Nations player of the Championship.
Vernier beat fellow nominees Marlie Packer and Holly Atchinson of England and Wales’ Sisilia Tuipulotu in the vote by fans.
The 25-year-old scored five tries and was a key component of the France side that lost only to the Red Roses in the Grand Slam decider at Twickenham.
“To win player of the championship is a huge honour, but it also belongs to all of my teammates as our campaign this year was a collective effort,” Vernier said.
