The Six Nations Player of the Championship has just been announced

Best of the best.

The 2024 Six Nations Player of the Championship has officially just been announced following a public vote to determine the result.

France scrum-half Antoine Dupont has dominated the award this decade, winning in 2020, 2022, and 2023 – a run broken only by Scotland flanker Hamish Watson (2021).

But having not featured in this championship, a new player has taken the crown. Ireland’s Bundee Aki was nominated alongside Ben Earl of England, Duhan Van Der Merwe of Scotland and Italy’s Tommaso Menoncello.

And it’s Italy and Benetton centre Tommaso Menoncello who has won the prestigious award following an incredible tournament for the Azzurri.

Commenting on winning the 2024 Guinness Men’s Six Nations Player of The Championship, Tommaso Menoncello said:

“This is a huge surprise and honour to be named the Guinness Men’s Six Nations Player of The Championship. It is truly special to represent my country, and to wear the Italy jersey alongside my friends and teammates. To then deliver performances that hopefully inspired the fans is what dreams are made of.

“Winning this award is testament to the achievements of the entire Italy team, and a sign of the exciting journey we are taking with Italian rugby. I would like to thank all my teammates, coaches, and the passionate fans. I would also like to congratulate all the other nominees for this award. We play an incredible but tough sport, and awards that recognise the commitment and sacrifice of each player means a lot.”
