Round 3: Six Nations team of the week – Scotland dominate our XV

Round 3: Six Nations team of the week after the third weekend of action, which saw Scotland, Ireland and France pick up wins against Wales, Italy and France Respectively.

Fullback: Hugo Bonneval – France

The Toulon man came away with the MOTM award for his performance in Marseille. He managed to get over for a try in the secondhalf and started a few French attacks with his dangerous running game.

Winger: Jacob Stockdale – Ireland

That’s seven tries in seven Tests for Stockdale, who is some finisher! A fantastic combination of pace and footwork continues to flummox defenders.

Centre: Huw Jones – Scotland

What a player. Jones should be one of the marked men of world rugby, and yet England gifted him so much space to run into. His first try came from a slice of good luck as the ball bounced in his favour but the second was all about his sheer power and pace to hold off Anthony Watson and Mike Brown to score just before the break. Chris Farrell and Mathieu Bastareaud were excellent for Ireland and France respectively, but Jones was simply sensational.

Centre: Bundee Aki – Ireland

Winger: Sean Maitland – Scotland

Took his try well in the corner as be held off the covering defence of Jonny May to score. Ran hard when coming into the line and had two good runs at full tilt to try and make an impact
