This is the best British and Irish XV based entirely on performances this weekend

With the four home nations clashing in the Six Nations yesterday and the first Lions Test against South Africa just over a year away, here are the men that would pull on the red jersey based entirely on yesterdays displays.

15. Jordan Larmour (Ireland): Excellent try, stepping inside Nick Tompkins and muscling his way over. Dangerous with ball in hand. 

14. Jonny May (England): Hit very hard twice in the first five minutes, and had a tough job in the back three that he did pretty solidly. Kept himself busy.

13. Robbie Henshaw (Ireland): Answered the questions about playing at 13. Nice offloads in the first half and gave Tompkins a torrid time before departing to HIA.

12. Owen Farrell (England): Booed by the Scots and missed more than his share of goal kicks in shocking conditions but led his team superbly and finished it off.  

11. Blair Kinghorn (Scotland): Was massively fired up for the game against England and it showed. Eagerly looked for work and was a reliable source of go-forward every time he got it. A massive improvement on last week.

10. Johnny Sexton (Ireland): Shanked his first conversion attempt and strayed into dangerous territory in his communications with the referee. But led his team to victory. Best of a underperforming bunch.

9. Conor Murray (Ireland): Found his flow better than against the Scots. His box kicking kept the Welsh out of Irish territory during the first-half battle and his snappy passing got him two try assists.
