Doris played an important role for Ireland from number eight, while Keenan was a steady presence at full-back and Hansen contributed from the wing as Andy Farrell’s side won their fourth Grand Slam.

France defeated England at Twickenham for the first time in the Six Nations since 2005, but lost to Ireland in Dublin.

Wing Penaud scored five tries to finish as the tournament’s leading try scorer, while Ramos scored 84 points from fullback.

Dupont led from scrum-half and has a chance to win his second player of the championship award in three years.

As they discussed the stand-out performers during BBC coverage, former Scotland captain John Barclay chose Keenan as his player of the championship, while ex-Wales captain Sam Warburton chose Penaud.

The winner will be announced on March 24, along with the championship team.
