2022 Six Nations team of the week: Round Three - Ruck

2022 Six Nations team of the week: Round Three


It’s that time of the week where we compile our dream side from the weekend’s action, here is RUCK’S 2022 Six Nations Team of the Week for round three:

BACK-THREE:

  • 15. Michael Lowry (Ireland)
  • 14. Damian Penaud (France)
  • 11. Alex Cuthbert (Wales)

Guardian on Cuthbert: “Threat with ball in hand and made one piercing run, but all too often failed to find teammates in space.”

Rugby Pass on Penaud: “Played his part in creating tries for Moefana and Danty. Posed the home side plenty of defensive questions throughout and earned his reward by strolling over for France’s fifth and sixth tries”

CENTRES:

  • 13. Henry Slade (Ireland)
  • 12. Jonathan Danty (France)

Mail Online on Slade: “Peach of a 50-22 was wasted by England but Slade is getting more authoritative as he nears his 50th cap. Still got more in him but kicked superbly.”

Rugby Pass on Danty: “The fit-again Danty, who scored France’s fourth try when the beneficiary of a fortuitous bounce, brought plenty of power to the visitors’ midfield in both attack and defence.”
