Ospreys and Ireland winger, Tommy Bowe, has been announced as the official RBS Player of the Championship for the 2010 RBS 6 Nations.
On receiving the trophy, Bowe commented: "It has been a Championship of mixed emotions for the Irish team but to be named the RBS Player of the Championship is a fantastic way to end what has been an exciting year for the RBS 6 Nations.
"The Tournament is always enjoyable and fantastic for rugby fans across Europe with some sensational, competitive rugby produced year after year. To be voted RBS Player of the Championship by the fans is a huge compliment and I thank them for taking the time to vote.'
The 2010 RBS Player of the Championship was decided as a result of a public vote, hosted on www.rbs6nations.com
A panel of former internationals from all six nations submitted their top three nominations, from which the shortlist of six nominees was compiled.
Bowe ensured that the RBS 6 Nations Player of the Championship Award stayed in Ireland with over 50% of the votes going his way - last year's winner Brian O'Driscoll received nearly 30% of the votes cast.
The remaining votes were dominated by RBS 6 Nations Champions France with Imanol Harinordoquy receiving 20.9% and Morgan Parra with 11.5% of the votes.
