Rugby World Cup warm-ups: RUCK’s Team of the Week
Fly-half: Owen Farrell (England): No number 10 really stood out this weekend. The England man, however, had a strong showing on the whole, missing just one of his eight kicks and defending his channel resolutely throughout.
Owen Farrell is, as ever, looking staggering this evening. This man has been top of my list for nearly a decade. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 #ENGvITA

Scrum-half: TJ Perenara (New Zealand) – He was in thick of it throughout and barely put a foot wrong.
Prop: Jack Dempsey (Australia) – Just about the Wallabies’ best forward of the night as they overcame Samoa 34-15 in Sydney.
Hooker: Codie Taylor (New Zealand) – Didn’t look out of place when hanging out with the backs on the flanks. He threw a dummy, pulled off a sidestep to score a try.
Prop: Tadhg Furlong (Ireland) – After being manhandled by Sam Underhill at Twickenham he was hunting collisions and got rewarded when bashing through three red jerseys for a 51st-minute try.
Tadhg Furlong’s reaction when he’s told it’s steak and spuds for dinner
