Some Pretty Big Omissions In The Opta Statistical Six Nations Team Of The Tournament

With the Six Nations now completed for another year, everyone is debating about who should be in a team of the competition.

We produced our team of the Six Nations yesterday, which you can find here, but Opta has released their statistical team of the tournament based on a unique index system which awards players points for all their actions in a game.

Interestingly enough, players like Alun Wyn Jones, Keith Earls and Johnny Sexton, who have featured in many selections from various different media outlets are not on the team. Conor Murray, according to Opta, is the highest ranked player of the tournament.

The Opta Team Of The Six Nations:

15. Stuart Hogg (Scotland)

14. Jonny May (England)

13. Huw Jones (Scotland)

12. Hadleigh Parkes (Wales)

11. Jacob Stockdale (Ireland)

10. Tomasso Allan (Italy)

9. Conor Murray (Ireland)

1.Mako Vunipola (England)

2. Stuart McInally (Scotland)
