Leicester Tigers scrum-half Ben Youngs is one of six nominees for the 2020 Guinness Six Nations Player of the Championship.

The England No.9 capped off an impressive tournament with a Man of the Match performance in the bonus-point victory over Italy in Rome in the final round of the longer-than-usual Championship on Saturday, which included a try double for the Leicester scrum-half in his 100th appearance for his country.

Youngs is nominated alongside England team-mate Maro Itoje, Irish back-rower CJ Stander and French trio Grégory Alldritt, Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack. 

Voting is open until Wednesday (November 4) evening ahead of the winner being announced on Friday, November 6 alongside the award of the Women’s Six Nations Player of the Championship.

Previous winners of the Player of the Championship include Alun Wyn Jones, Jacob Stockdale, Stuart Hogg and Paul O'Connell, as well as international legends Brian O'Driscoll and Shane Williams since it was first awarded in 2004.
