Six Nations 2014: England's Mike Brown named best player

England full-back Mike Brown

England full-back Mike Brown has been named Six Nations Player of the Championship after securing over 34% of the 68,000 votes cast by fans.

Brown, 28, scored four tries, including two in a man of the match performance against Italy, and was also man of the match against Scotland and Ireland.

Brown said: "I'm extremely grateful and proud to win this award, particularly as it's decided by the supporters."

Retiring Ireland legend Brian O'Driscoll, 35, came second.

The centre's 14-year international career ended with Ireland winning in France to claim the 2014 Six Nations title.

The 16-man shortlist for the award was decided through match statistics and analysis across a set range of criteria from matches in this year's competition.

England coach Stuart Lancaster said: "Congratulations to Mike for winning this accolade. He has been consistently strong for us throughout the competition and put in some outstanding performances."
