RUCK picks their World XV based on performances during the Autumn Internationals

Ireland may dominate but there is also room for plenty of All Blacks, Englishman and Welshman while Israel Folau and Teddy Thomas fly the flag for Australia and France.
Fullback: ISRAEL FOLAU (Australia)

Back at fullback, Folau looks threatening every time he touches the ball. Very much one of the best in world rugby.

Honourable mentions: Damien Mckenzie (New Zealand), Rob Kearney (Ireland)


Winger: JACOB STOCKDALE (Ireland) 

Hero of the moment. The Ulster wingers game-clinching try against the All Blacks will never be forgotten. 12 tries in 14 tests say everything that needs to be said.

Honourable mentions: Ben Smith (New Zealand), Sbu Nkosi (South Africa)


Centre: GARRY RINGROSE (Ireland)

He is developing into a wonder player at international level, and is able to form strong partnerships with whoever is inside him. Somewhat strangely the only player retained in the side to face the USA, but delivered with a virtuoso performance in playing a key role in Andrew Conway’s hat-trick.

Honourable mentions: Ryan Crotty (New Zealand), Jonathan Davies (Wales)
