Player of the 2020 6N

Post by Rugby lover »

Ok so after what was an exciting and strange 6N in strange times, let's nominate the player who impressed you the most.
Mine would be both Itoje and Dupont, can't separate them but felt they were both the 2 best and especially the 2 most influential players of this 6N.

Itoje is a cheat who will eventually get pinged.
Dupont is world class.

Dupont for me despite Itoje running him very close for that title (and clearly don't think Itoje would exchange that title with the 6N he and England won!).
If injuries leave him alone (big if as he already suffered from a grave injury), I think he might well end in the Carter/BOD/Cullen/Robinson class of players.
And I found that his play on France's third try tonight was absolutely incredible as 99% of the other players wouldn't have managed to execute that offload in such position.
Perhaps his best play in this 6N and that's not small feat considering the number of great things he did in this 6N.

Salty.

Itoje used to get pinged. Not too often now.
He also destroyed Italian line or ball on his own today.

Lol Itoje is world class and probably the current world best second row. Guy is just a machine.
Oh and you can't be a world class second row without playing on the edge of the law.

I can't remember individual player performances from the first 4 rounds.

I’d have Donnacha Ryan ahead of him also.

You might want to add the player that tops virtually every individual stat in the tournament- Charles Ollivon.

Dupont, he's just so good. Does everything so well, and more. Elsewhere, Aldritt and Curry are both very good,

Itoje still has games where he gets rattled ROG style and everything turns to shit. Can't remember if he had one in this 6N.

In conclusion, I don't care.

It has to be a player from the Champions.

Ergo, Itoje, all day long. He was brilliant yesterday when England were flat - didn't do anything special; just relentless accuracy and intensity, dragging the rest of the pack along with him.

Dupont is decent but I'll reserve judgment until he's played behind a French pack up against a properly steaming English or Bok pack. He's had an easy ride so far. In general, these Frenchies don't like it up 'em.

Is that a troll? :lol:
It shows you haven't watched Dupont behind some shitouse French packs in the last few years.
Let's refresh you your memory:

https://youtu.be/xCZ1q8eYH_Y (Perhaps Dupont's best international game to date against the best team in the world and playing behind one of the worst French packs in history)

https://youtu.be/aVreBr8XD0s (And he played only in the second half while France were in total disarray)

Actually, what you said about Dupont should more be applied to guys like Faf or Smith who had the luxury for a decade of playing behind dominant SA and NZ packs.

Actually, even in this 6N, you can't really say the French pack were dominant, just look at the crunch where England pack had the upper hand in both scrums, lineouts and collisions.....but they still lost that game mostly because of Farrell and care having a shocker and because of Dupont having another incredible performance behind a French pack on the back foot.

P.s.: rewatching those videos, i'm still in love with that replay on the amazing tackle from Cane on him.
Is there a better definition of textbook tackle? Cane
still remains underrated in my opinion btw.

Better vote for an All Black, lads. You know how the Kiwis get about these sorts of "best" and "greatest" polls.

Itoje will almost destroy an opposition pack singlehandedly . Dupont is quality, and a joy to match but Itoje has a bigger overall influence on the game
