Canterbury, the official team kit partner of England Rugby, is giving fans the chance to honour one member of the England team with the England Player of the Tournament Award.
A shortlist of six players has been drawn up after careful analysis of England’s RBS 6 Nations performances so far. It is now up to the fans to decide who is worthy of the being named England Player of the Tournament. The winning player will receive Canterbury kit to donate to a local club team of their choice.
Is Chris Robshaw leading the team to victory? Should Owen Farrell be rewarded for being England’s top points scorer? Is Manu Tuilagi’s attacking the reason behind the team’s success? Have Dan Cole's performances in the scrum given him the edge? Should Geoff Parling be commended for his high tackle count? Do England owe their victory over France to Tom Wood’s defence?
Choose your England Player of the Tournament:
- Chris Robshaw, donating to Warlingham RFC
- Dan Cole, donating to South Leicester RFC
- Geoff Parling, donating to Stockton RFC
- Manu Tuilagi, donating to Hinkley RFC
- Owen Farrell, donating to Wigan St Patrick’s RLFC
- Tom Wood, donating to Barkers’ Butts RFC
Chris Stephenson, Canterbury CEO, said: “We launched this award to commend the excellent standard of rugby we have seen from England players throughout the whole tournament. England stand a great chance of winning the RBS 6 Nations and Canterbury want to celebrate the stand-out performances in the team that are helping to make this possible.”
To cast your vote head to www.rfu.com/playerofthetournament or England Rugby’s Facebook page before voting closes on March 19. All votes will go into a prize draw to win a Canterbury England jersey. The player with the most votes at the end of the RBS 6 Nations will be named England Player of the Tournament, sponsored by Canterbury, official team kit partner of England Rugby.
