2022 Six Nations team of the week: Round 2

HALFBACKS:

  • 10. Dan Biggar (Wales)
  • 9. Antoine Dupont (France)

Wales Online on Biggar: “Played flat and challenged the gain line, bringing runners into the game with superb timing of the pass in the first half. Managed the second 40 well, despite Scotland’s brilliant defence. Was injured for most of the game, but that didn’t stop him.”

Rugby Pass on Dupont: “Always a threat from the base and showed some sublime touches in addition to managing the game to good effect and taking very few wrong options.”

FRONT-ROW:

  • 1. Cyril Baille (France)
  • 2. Ryan Elias (Wales)
  • 3. Tadhg Furlong (Ireland)

Rugby Pass on Baille: “Timed his run superbly then withstood some heavy hits to claim a rare international try in the third quarter. Finished with an honourable draw in his personal scrum contest with Tadgh Furlong.”

Wales Online on Elias: “Generally threw well at the lineout, an area of concern heading in, and was busy in the loose, snaffling a turnover near the end of the first half. Consistently made yards after contact, forcing Wales onto the front foot. Pivotal in turning around Wales’ woes.”

Irish Examiner on Furlong: “The best Irish player on the field. His passing and power were key parts of Ireland’s third-quarter comeback.”
