    Not sure if I'd pick Murray over Paulie for this.
    Don't get me wrong, Conor is great - probably the best 9 in the world for me.

    But O'Connell was magnificent in every game. Including the Welsh game where Murray was a little off I thought.

      Murray will be nominated many times more, but this year I'm backing Paulie early and often!

      Proud there are two Munstermen in the nominees. Key men.
      I am the million man.

                POC for me. Every time. Can't say it enough. The man has done it in every way this season.

                Wish I could thank this post.
                "I don't believe in fairytales," O'Connell once told me, "even though it feels like I've been lucky enough to live through a few. However it ends, I'll feel lucky."

                  Not a big fan of polling for player of tournament. Tends to be susceptible to people band-wagoning to support a certain players claims. Would rather that people vote for their player of the tournament with national bias.

                              walesonline:

                              Ireland captain Paul O’Connell has been named the Player of the Tournament for the 2015 Six Nations beating Wales duo Alun Wyn Jones and Dan Biggar.
                              O’Connell securing more than 26% of the public vote with the backing of 18,842 fans. Alun-Wyn Jones came in second with 19% of the vote, a nod to his heroic performance in the Welsh win against Ireland in Cardiff.
                              The race for third place was a hotly contested affair with just 0.9% of the votes separating Ireland’s rising star Robbie Henshaw (3rd with 7750 votes) and Wales’s Dan Biggar (4th with 7681 votes). Italy’s talisman Sergio Parisse was rewarded for his commanding performances, finishing fifth with 7% of the votes, just ahead of England’s star player Ben Youngs in sixth with six per cent of the votes.
                              The 35-year-old started all five of Ireland’s games as Joe Schmidt’s side secured their second consecutive championship win.
                              O’Connell captained Ireland to wins against Italy, France, England and Scotland, the only disappointment coming in defeat to Wales in Cardiff.
                              The second row’s individual performances were consistently superb through the competition, the Limerick man even grabbing a try during the final day 40-10 victory against Scotland.


                              O’Connell, who also won his 100th Irish cap against Wales, was joined on the shortlist for player of the tournament by team-mates Conor Murray and Robbie Henshaw, while four Englishman made that selection George Ford, Jonathan Joseph, Ben Youngs and Billy Vunipola.
                              Welsh pair Biggar and Jones, Scots Jonny Gray and Stuart Hogg, and Italian captain Sergio Parisse completed the list.
                              "I'm delighted to receive the trophy,” O’Connell said.
                              “When you see the names of those who have won it before you realise what a great honour it is. I'm very grateful to all the supporters who voted for me."
                              The shortlist was decided through a combination of match statistics, analysing the best performing players across a set range of criteria, and a public vote.
                              The combination of the two processes should ensure the 12 man shortlist is a true reflection of the greatest players throughout the Championship.
                              Players at every RBS 6 Nations match this year were awarded (or deducted) points based upon a number of different performance categories which cover all aspects of the game.
                              These categories were proportionately weighted based on the different positions by an algorithm created by RBS 6 Nations statisticians.
