CARDIFF, Wales (AP) Alun Wyn Jones was chosen as the Six Nations' best rugby player after leading Wales to the Grand Slam.

Jones topped a public vote from a shortlist with teammates Hadleigh Parkes, Josh Adams, and Liam Williams, and England players Jonny May and Tom Curry.

"I'm very flattered to be named the Guinness Six Nations player of the championship," Jones said in a statement on Friday. "For me as the captain, it's a validation of what we've done as a squad throughout the campaign."
