Webb nominated for 6N award

Rhys Webb has been named on the 12-man shortlist for RBS Six Nations Player of the Championship.

Webb, who started all five of Wales’ games in this season’s tournament, is hoping to follow in the footsteps of former Ospreys, Tommy Bowe (2010) and Shane Williams (2008) in winning the award, while his current regional team-mate, Dan Lydiate, took the honour in 2012 while at the Dragons.

Players at every RBS 6 Nations match this year have been awarded or deducted points based upon several different performance categories which cover all aspects of the game. These categories are proportionately weighted based on the different positions by an algorithm created by Accenture, Official Technology Partner of the RBS 6 Nations.

Accenture, Official Technology Partner of the RBS 6 Nations, has worked very closely with Accenture Analysis Team member, and former South Africa and Italy coach, Nick Mallett, to draw up a shortlist of 12 players who have displayed specialist skills and outstanding ability throughout the whole Championship.
