England were the only side to beat champions, Ireland thanks to a nail-biting drop-goal in extra time by Marcus denying Irish hopes of a grand slam.

England won three matches during the tournament, but were narrowly denied a last-minute win against France on Saturday, and the Calcutta Cup for the fourth year in a row. 

Smith, who missed some matches due to a calf injury, scored vital points in this year's event, even regaining control to the England squad in the early moments of Saturday's second half. But it was his dazzling drop-kick against Ireland that has cemented his place as one of this year's heroes.
