If not it HAS to be Maro Itoje imo . He's just been excellent every game he's played

I'd say SOB but wouldn't be at all aggrieved by Itoje. What I can see happening and what I would be infuriated by is AWJ getting it. Started every test and never made any glaring errors. I can see Gatland going for it.

Maro Itoje up there, for me. I think his penalty count last week could see him lose out, though (however I did see a break down of some of his penalties on reddit, and some of them were "for the greater good (the greater good" type penalties, as he stopped a 4 on 1 overlap by killing the ball at one point).
Faletau has been quiet, but quietly effective.
Jon Davies definitely in with a shout, he's been the most consistent performer over the three tests, I reckon. Some VERY important contributions today both on attack and defence.
SOB's been class, too. Really hit his stride again.

I'd be happy with any one of: Itoje, SO'B, Jamie George & Connor Murray.

Itoje really galvenized this whole tour tbh but he wasn't the best player, he made a lot of mistakes. Jonathan Davies for me.

Played himself out of contention today with those lineouts IMO.

The real contenders for me are:
  • Maro Itoje
  • Sean O'Brien
  • Jonathan Davies
Others that could have a shout:
  • Alun Wyn Jones
  • Sam Warburton
  • Conor Murray
  • Owen Farrell
I don't agree with the group of four that I've listed but I do think that they're the players that Gats will probably have approved of massively through the tour.

Dan Cole for me.
By making all the other players look more attractive by comparison when out on team socials he surely played a vital part in all the "scoring" that occurred on this tour.

What about an NZ man of the series?
I'd say it's between Retallick, Cane and Read. Due to the sentimental value of Read being captain and him reaching his 100th I imagine it'll go to him (That's if they nominate a man of the series, do they?)

I thought their front row was excellent

Never liked Cane, always struck me as a thug, but he'd get my vote.

For NZ Kaino for me the difference between NZ with him and then without him is pretty big.
