LONDON (AP) -- England fullback Mike Brown has been voted by the public as the best player in the Six Nations.

Brown scored four tries and gained 540 meters in 65 carries across England's five matches, helping him secure more than 34 percent of a vote cast by more than 68,000 people. England finished second in the competition, behind Ireland on points difference.

Ireland centre Brian O'Driscoll, who retired from international rugby after the team's title-clinching win over France in the final round on Saturday, was second with 28 percent of the vote.

Brown says he is "extremely grateful and proud to win this award, particularly as it's decided by the supporters."

England coach Stuart Lancaster said Brown was "consistently strong for us throughout the competition and put in some outstanding performances."
