Autumn Nations Cup Team of the week

BACK-THREE

15. Liam Williams (Wales) – Back in his favoured position of full-back, he seemed on a mission to run the legs off Georgia throughout. He made a lot of metres and gave Wales a dash of X factor.

14. Louis Reez-Zammit (Wales) – A first Test start for the teenager, and surely the first of many Wales caps. Claimed his first try at this level with a nice finish and put in a gliding run that saw him bewilder the Georgian defence.

11. Jonny May (England) – Hadn’t touched down for England since February but clambered above Keenan before producing one from his 22 for the scrapbook.


CENTRES

13. Virimi Vakatawa (France) – The powerhouse centre bullied his way through for the only try of the contest at Murrayfield. He made 81 metres from his 8 carries.

12. Gael Fickou (France) – The co-captain was industrious and showed great leadership within a young backline throughout at Murrayfield. Made a lovely little inside pass in the build up to Vakatawa’s try.
