WORLD RANKINGS | England leapfrog New Zealand

WORLD RANKINGS (16/11/2020)


Autumn Nations Cup Team of the week | Round 1

BACK-THREE

  • 15. Elliot Daly (England) – Had plenty of ball and slipped the leash just before half-time to mark his return with a try. 
  • 14. James Lowe (Ireland) –  An ideal debut for the pacy debutant and added a try at the end to boot.
  • 11. Duhan van der Merwe (Scotland) – Always looking for work, he ran a glorious line for his try.

CENTRE

  • 13. Chris Harris (Scotland) – Maybe his best game to date in a Scotland shirt – both in attack and defence.
  • 12. Robbie Henshaw (Ireland) – Solid under the high-ball early doors and won a turnover penalty later on.
