Round 2: Six Nations team of the week

Round 2: Six Nations team of the week after the second weekend of action, which saw England, Ireland and Scotland pick up wins against Wales, Italy and France Respectively.

First of all, who was your player of the week?

Now here’s our selection.


Fullback: Mike Brown (England)

Was poor in Rome a week ago but always turns up for the big games at Twickenham. Some great carries and majestic catches made the game against Wales the 32-year-old’s best performance in a long time. 


Winger: Teddy Thomas (France) 

The speedsters blistering pace tore Scotland apart twice, taking his total to three tries in two outings so far.


Centre: Robbie Henshaw (Ireland)

Caused Italy untold problems until injury cut short his day in a fine showing. The Leinster centre’s relationship with Bundee Aki was being rekindled just as he injured himself in the process of scoring his second try. If the prognosis is as bad as expected, he will be a real loss for rest of the Championship.


Centre: Owen Farrell (England)

Slid a sublime through-ball to May to set the tone for an England’s fine start. Another impressive all-round display featured slicing lines, one burrowing turnover and two dominant tackles that forced errors.


Winger: Jonny May (England)

Possibly his best performance in an England shirt, scoring his first two tries ever in the Six Nations. Managed to do his bit in defence too.
