Find out who makes it into our XV this week as the standouts from the final round of pre-World Cup summer Tests combine…

Fullback: Rob Kearney (Ireland) –A standout performer as Ireland went to the top of the World Rankings. Out sprinted George North to deny the Welsh winger a certain try on four minutes before scoring his 15th Test try.

Winger: George Bridge (New Zealand)Scored a brilliant quartet of tries as he showed off his blistering pace and deft finishing. Made an incredible eight line breaks and beat 10 defenders to run for a match-high 236 metres.


Centre: Robbie Henshaw (Ireland) –  Some outstanding work in defence and carried the ball strongly going forward.

Centre: Anton Lienert-Brown (New Zealand) – The powerhouse made a game-high 17 carries, 89 metres in attack, 10 tackles, one turnover, two clean breaks and beat six defenders.

Winger: Darcy Graham (Scotland) – The undisputed Man of the Match for the Scots as they overcame Georgia and may just have played his way into Scotland’s starting XV. He had a hand in both of Scotland’s first-half scores, and he grabbed a try of his own.
