This calendar year he played in all five games of an English GS, a three match away test series whitewash of Australia, Autumn international victories over Australia Argentina, South Africa and Fiji, led his club Saracens to an Aviva Premiership and their first European Cup and is this season part of a league leading and ERC group leading team including an away win at Toulon.
He collected Six Nations, Premiership, and European Cup medals and played 13 of England's (12 starts at first centre) 16 matches in an unbeaten year.
A mighty impressive 12 months in which he has been an integral part of those successes
It really is hard to make an argument for any other Northern Hemisphere centre in front of Farrell

If they wanted to pick a 12 then Henshaw
If they wanted a winger then Haylett Petty
Problem is Australia and Boks had garbage seasons and Creevy never gets the love he deserves

Showed great potential in his breakout season but again look at the consistency of Farrell's play and subsequent results since last January in rounds 5 and 6 of the European Cup. Grand Slam, Aviva Premiership, European Cup, whitewashing the Aussies 3-0, unbeaten 4match Autumn Series, top of the premiership and top of their pool in Europe.
His 2016 is a serious body of work in which every goal was achieved. Not a surprise to see 4 English Saracens included.
Remember this isn't who you think is or might be the better player in the future but is the team of this complete calendar year.
