England's Henry Pollock has been named the 2024 U20 men’s Six Nations Player of the Championship.

Pollock played a pivotal role in England's title triumph starting with a hat-trick against Italy. He went on to win three Player of the Match awards.

A product of the England Rugby Men’s Pathway, Pollock made his senior debut for Saints in the Premiership Cup against Saracens in 2022. At the age of 17, he became the youngest ever try-scorer in the professional era for Northampton.

He made his full time Premiership debut against Leicester Tigers last year.

“I am very honoured to win the award. I want to thank everyone that has worked around me to get me to where I am now," said Pollock.

 “It was a great tournament to be involved in.

"We built really well through the five games, and it was credit to the whole squad. It was a very good campaign, and we are now looking ahead and excited for the World Championship this summer.”

Chief of Rugby at Six Nations Julie Paterson had high praises for Pollock and his performances in the competition.

“Each year the Under-20 Six Nations Championship highlights the incredible talent each union and federation are developing. Henry is certainly a star in the making, and fully deserves his award.

"He is also a great example of the rugby pathway that the Under-18 Festivals and then Under-20 Championship offers, and its ability to provide a platform for such talented young players to showcase their skills, but also gain vital international rugby experience.”
