VOTE: Who was your England player of the autumn Tests?

4:59 PM GMT

Eddie Jones’ side won all 13 of their matches in 2016 so with the dust now settling on the autumn Tests, who was your England player of the end-of-year internationals?

Billy Vunipola: The jewel in England’s crown under Jones, Vunipola was magnificent until a knee injury ended his campaign early.

Jonathan Joseph: An outstanding autumn from an increasingly rounded player who is now far more than a lethal finisher with an eye for a gap.

George Ford: Consistency is a minor issue, but England’s fly-half is an otherwise fantastic player as demonstrated by his masterclass against Argentina.

Ben Youngs: A battle royal with Conor Murray for the Lions nine jersey awaits after excelling across all four Tests, his dummies providing the highlights.

Tom Wood: Jones turned to the Northampton flanker as a stop-gap measure, but his sterling efforts may force the head coach to revise his thinking.

Courtney Lawes: England’s remarkable depth at lock is personified by Lawes, who is not part of the first-choice pairing despite his heroics this autumn.

Mako Vunipola: Started the series stronger than he finished it, but a world-class loosehead with the skills of a centre.

Chris Robshaw: Produced another defensive masterclass in the rearguard action against Argentina. His work rate is remarkable.
