It’s that time of the week where we compile our dream side from the weekend’s action, here is RUCK’S Autumn Nations Cup Team of the Week:
Autumn Nations Cup Team of the week
- 15. Elliot Daly (England) – Had plenty of ball and slipped the leash just before half-time to mark his return with a try.
- 14. James Lowe (Ireland) – An ideal debut for the pacy debutant and added a try at the end to boot.
- 11. Duhan van der Merwe (Scotland) – Always looking for work, he ran a glorious line for his try.
- 13. Chris Harris (Scotland) – Maybe his best game to date in a Scotland shirt – both in attack and defence.
- 12. Robbie Henshaw (Ireland) – Solid under the high-ball early doors and won a turnover penalty later on.
