Here’s Our Six Nations Team Of The Weekend

Well, the first weekend of this year’s Six Nations has come to a close and there is no shortage of talking points after an engrossing two days of rugby. 

Scotland failed to deliver in their much-anticipated clash with Wales at the Principality Stadium, Ireland just about got over the line thanks to a dramatic last-gasp Jonathan Sexton drop-goal while England produced a powerful second-half display to put Conor O’Shea’s Italy to the sword in Rome.

We have produced our XV of the weekend based on those three games and trust us, there was plenty of deliberation in getting this together!

15. Leigh Halfpenny (Wales)

14. Anthony Watson (England)

13. Tommaso Boni (Italy)

12. Hadleigh Parkes (Wales)

11. Steff Evans (Wales)

10. Jonathan Sexton (Ireland)

9. Gareth Davies (Wales)

1. Cian Healy (Ireland)

2. Guilhem Guirado (France)

3. Samson Lee (Wales)

4. Joe Launchbury (England)

5. James Ryan (Ireland)

6. Aaron Shingler (Wales)

7. Josh Navidi (Wales)

8. Sam Simmonds (England)

So in total, we have gone with seven Welsh, three English, three Irish, one French and one Italian in our final team.

We have no doubt that some [most] of you will disagree with our selections so please let us know who you would have included in your Six Nations team in the comments section!
