Round 1: Six Nations team of the week after the openeing weekend of action, which saw England, Scotland and Wales pick up wins.
Fullback: Stuart Hogg – Scotland
A brilliant performance from Scotland’s star 15 against
Winger: Blair Kinghorn – Scotland
Hattrick hero. First Scottish player to ever score a hattrick in the Six Nations, all of Kinghorn’s tries were tremendous finishes.

Winger: Jonny May – England
England’s most potent attacker against Ireland. Took the opening try superbly and continued to threat throughout with his electric pace. His perfect kick then set up Slade for the game-winning try.
