Autumn Internationals Team of the Week: Do you agree with our selection?

Players from 10 countries make this week’s Autumn Internationals Team of the Week after a sensational weekend of games but who has made the team and who misses out.

RUCK POLL


Fullback: Stuart Hogg (Scotland)

Was a threat to the All Blacks all match with his cutbacks and exemplified the Scottish ambition and intent. Game leading 131 metres run, 16 carries, 2 clean breaks and five defenders beaten. Deserved to score in the final minute but was thwarted by Beauden Barrett’s brilliant last-ditch tackle.


Winger: David Sweetnam (Ireland)

The speedster has been keeping Andrew Conway out of the Munster team of late and his performance against Fiji proved why. Sweetnam touched down for Ireland’s opener and he always looked dangerous with the ball on the right wing.


Centre: Huw Jones (Scotland)

Great battle with the All Blacks Ryan Crotty in midfield and probably just came out on top. Scored yet another sensational try and is building a world-class reputation.


Centre: Sonny Bill Williams (New Zealand)

Finally silenced his critic. Delicate and delicious grubber to set up Damian McKenzie and a trademark brilliant offload to spark Beauden Barrett’s sumptuous try. Along with all that the powerhouse centre made eleven tackles.


Winger: Rieko Ioane (New Zealand) 

Not much action first quarter then burst into it big-time. Several great bursts through tacklers and good offloads. Created game’s opening try in the 45th min with one of those runs then great vision to send a cut-out ball to put Taylor away in his left corner.
