England have the biggest representation on a 12-strong shortlist announced by tournament organisers for this season's RBS 6 Nations player of the tournament.
Centre Jonathan Joseph, fly-half George Ford, scrum-half Ben Youngs and number eight Billy Vunipola all feature among the group.
England, despite beating France 55-35 two days ago, were pipped to the title by Ireland, with Wales finishing third.
Three Ireland players make the list - captain Paul O'Connell, centre Robbie Henshaw and scrum-half Conor Murray - together with Welshmen Alun-Wyn Jones and Dan Biggar, Scots Stuart Hogg and Jonny Gray, and Italy captain Sergio Parisse.
Surprise omissions, though, include Wales captain Sam Warburton and his team-mate Leigh Halfpenny, plus France wing Yoann Huget.
Throughout the tournament, players were awarded (or deducted) points based on statistical performance across different categories.

We all know that the England football team loses quite a lot, but do we need a constant reminder?
Apparently yes. This artwork created by Italian Maurizio Cattelan is set to go up for auction tomorrow and fetch between £400,000-£600,000.
The large piece, on black granite and made from MDF and steel, details all of England's defeats from 1874-1998 - starting with a 2-1 loss to Scotland and ending with that devastating defeat to Romania in the 1998 World Cup.
"Carved into it are all the defeats of England’s national football team. I guess it’s a piece which talks about pride, missed opportunities and death," says artist Cattelan in the Sotheby catalogue notes.

Heaslip cracked three vertebrae in Ireland's 18-11 victory over France two weeks ago in an incident that earned French lock Pascal Pape a 10-week ban, and Ireland hope he will be fit for their next game against Wales in Cardiff on March 14.
