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. 

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.
