GALLERY: RUCK’s Rugby Team of the Week

It was a busy few days of non-stop rugby action, but which 15 players make our team of the weekend?

Fullback: Telusa Veainu (Leicester Tigers)
The attacking brilliance of the Tongan was there for all to see as he touched down against Wasps. He definitely didn’t deserve to be on the losing side.

Wing: Jack Nowell (Exeter Chiefs)

Centre: Frances Saili (Munster)
The centre, who was named the man of the match in his final appearance at Thomond Park, darted over for the opening try in the 26th minute to help his side to the Guinness Pro 12 final.

Centre: Jimmy Gopperth (Wasps)
Jimmy Gopperth once again proved why he was the king in this season’s awards ceremonies with another influential performance. He’s quickly become a fan favourite at the Ricoh Arena!

Wing: Josh Bassett (Wasps)

Fly-half: Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs)
Saracen’s Mark McCall described Henry Slade’s match-swinging nudge as “one of the great kicks of all time”.

Scrum-half: Nic Groom (Northampton)

Prop: David Kilcoyne (Munster)

Hooker: Thomas Youngs (Leicester Tigers)

Prop: Samson Lee (Scarlets)

Lock: Joe Launchbury (Wasps)
The Wasps captain takes a deserved place in our team of the week. He may not be in the Lions squad but the way he’s playing, Eddie Jones will be thrilled to have him in Argentina.

Lock: Courtney Lawes (Northampton)

Flanker: Schalk Burger (Saracens)

Flanker: James Davies (Scarlets)

The flanker almost broke social media with his head-turning man-of-the-match performance and the fact that he’s been left out by Wales for their summer tour.

Number 8: Thomas Waldrom (Exeter Chiefs)
