Stockdale secured 32% of rugby fans' votes as he edged out his Ireland teammates Conor Murray (18.2%), Jonathan Sexton (18%) and Keith Earls (14.5%) to win the award.

Stockdale - who scored a record seven tries during the Six Nations - is joined in the starting line-up by fellow Grand Slam victor Iain Henderson.

The Ireland winger was a clear victor in the public vote, gaining 32% of rugby fans' votes.

The record-breaking Ulsterman scooped nearly a third of the public vote as he topped the six-man poll that also included Italy fullback Matteo Minozzi and France captain Guilhem Guirado.

Stockdale's teammate for club and country, Iain Henderson, presented the prestigious NatWest Player of the Championship trophy to him on Thursday.

The top four vote-getters all came from Grand Slam-winning Ireland.

Stockdale, who only made his Test debut last summer, claimed try doubles in Ireland's victories over Italy, Wales and Scotland, and then added another touchdown during the Grand Slam-clinching triumph against England on St Patrick's Day.

Scoring multiple tries in three consecutive matches tied Stockdale for the record with Lowe.

Ireland wing Jacob Stockdale has reflected on "a truly memorable few weeks" after being named NatWest 6 Nations player of the championship.

"It's an absolute honour to win the player of the championship, especially when you look at the fantastic calibre of those short-listed".
