WORCESTER Warriors wing Josh Adams has been shortlisted for the 2019 Guinness Six Nations Player of the Championship award.

Adams, 23, was a key figure in helping Wales to a Grand Slam in head coach Warren Gatland’s last Six Nations in charge.

His break set up scrum-half Tomos Williams for the try that began the memorable fightback against France in Paris in their tournament opener.

The Warriors flyer scored a try in each of the next three victories with his last-gasp effort against England in Cardiff snatching a dramatic win.

Adams is one of four Wales players on the six-man shortlist for the prize alongside captain Alun Wyn Jones, Liam Williams and Hadleigh Parkes.

England wing Jonny May, who scored six tries in the tournament including a first half hat-trick against France, and back row Tom Curry complete the list which now goes to fans for their vote.

Supporters have until Wednesday at noon to select at sixnationsrugby.com/2019/03/18/guinness-six-nations-player-of-the-championship-2019.

Meanwhile, Adams admitted he was still on cloud nine after the Grand Slam success.

He said: “I’ve had 11 caps, thoroughly enjoyed all 11 of them, and to top it off with a Grand Slam is what dreams are made of.

“It would have been nice to have kept the try-scoring run going but I’m happy with the three I’ve got.

“The whole squad have contributed really well. We couldn’t have done it without the collective effort and that includes the backroom staff.

“We have just been really hungry to succeed. The trophy presentation was the highlight without a doubt.

“I would give up every try I’ve scored in this campaign to be standing on that podium as Grand Slam winners and lift that trophy.

“It was a bit surreal and I’m still on cloud nine.”

Adams returns to training at Sixways ahead of Warriors’ crunch Gallagher Premiership clash at Bristol Bears on Saturday.

But he added: “I won’t be taking my medal into training — there are a few England boys in the group so I don’t think I could rub it in too much. I’ve sent the picture to our WhatsApp group though.”
