Round 3: Six Nations team of the week after the second weekend of action, which saw England, France and Scotland pick up wins against Ireland, Wales and Italy.
15 – Stuart Hogg (Scotland): Back to his best in Rome. His resplendent 22nd minute solo effort – which spanned some 40 metres of the pitch – is a contender for try of the Six Nations.
14 – Anthony Bouthier (France): There wasn’t many standout wingers this weekend, so we’ve put a second fullback in our XV. As Jiffy said on commentary, he’s a natural footballer. What a find he continues to be, having been uncapped prior to the Championship.
13 – Manu Tuilagi (England): Nightmare for Ireland. Made yards all day, just like Dublin a years ago. Did the work of the two missing Vunipola’s.
The best 13 in the world comes off, solid shift Manu Tuilagi 💪— Alpha Male (@Options____) February 23, 2020
12 – Owen Farrell (England): Won the family battle with something to spare. Kicked everything, varied his play and controlled the game superbly.
11 – Jonathan Joseph (England): Playing out of position on his 50th cap, the outside-centre passed all the tests that everyone knew were coming his way. Looked lively, and quick.
