The Connacht wing was integral as Ireland secured the Six Nations title last month, scoring a hattrick in the final-day 73-3 hammering of Scotland.

Miller also scored a try in the vital away win against Wales, and has been a hugely consistent performer and try-scorer in Ireland colours in recent seasons.

The Portlaoise wing was a dominant winner of Sky’s public vote for March, picking up no less than 82% of the vote. Second-placed Lianne Sanderson, a professional footballer with England and Arsenal, was some distance behind with 13%.
