Six Nations 2022 Team Of The Week: Round 5

SECOND-ROW:

  • 4. Cameron Woki (France): “Enjoyed pitting his wits against Itoje at the lineout and around the field he probably edged that absorbing individual battle.” – Guardian
  • 5, Paul Willemse (France): “France’s king of the ruck clearouts, playing like he was possessed, and the power he offered behind Atonio was immense. Arguably the player of the tournament.” – Telegraph

BACK-ROW:

  • 6. Josh van der Flier (Ireland): “If there was a player who demonstrated the grit and application required to ensure a positive result then it was Ireland’s openside flanker. He is credited with 17 tackles but it looked more; he was present when Ireland needed him most and capped the display with a try.” – Irish Times
  • 7. Sam Underhill (England): “Good early tackle on Jaminet halted a counter-attack. Heck of a return from a world-class player on his day, with one belting turnover when France were on the charge.” – Telegraph
  • 8. Gregory Alldritt (France): “Another wonderful display from the number eight, with his off-load for Dupont’s try a highlight” – Planet Rugby
