There were 32,240 votes in total this year, over doubling the amount of input from fans in last year’s competition – really highlighting the growth of the women’s game.

The rules of the voting system, according to England Rugby, were as follows:

‘The statistics gathered across the Guinness Women’s Six Nations highlighted the standout players per position, with fans then asked to cast their votes to determine which players made the Team of The Championship. The top players, from a stats and votes perspective, then dictated the shortlist for the 2024 Guinness Player of The Championship.’

Kildunne spoke about her achievement, saying: “I am honoured to be named Player of The Championship, but the credit needs to be shared with my teammates. The award is particularly special given it has been decided by the fans. There is a genuine sense that the sky is the limit for the growth of women’s rugby. We are chasing down a sold-out Twickenham for a women’s game. Attendances and viewers are up, and the buzz around the sport is only getting louder. As players, we feed off this and want to put on a show for fans.

Huge congratulations need to go to the other players on this year’s shortlist. It just goes to show that the teams and players competing cross the Championship are helping put women’s rugby on more people’s radar. ”
