Scotland's Stuart Hogg has been voted the RBS Six Nations Player of the Tournament for the second year in succession.

Hogg received just over 24% of the vote with Ireland's CJ Stander in second place with roughly 15% of the vote while Louis Picamoles in third with around 13%.

Speaking after receiving the award, Hogg said: "To receive this award again is an absolute honour, particularly when you take other players on the shortlist into account. I'm delighted to be awarded the RBS Player of the Championship Trophy and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted and the fans for their continued support throughout the Championship."

Hogg scored two tries in the opening game of the tournament against Ireland and a try against France a week later.

He becomes the first player to win the award in successive years since Brian O'Driscoll in 2006 and 2007.
