Would This Be The Most Exciting XV In The Six Nations?

462982302

Given the 2015 Six Nations has seen some fairly turgid rugby, we would love to see a side like this put together for one game;

15.Stuart Hogg

Hogg has blistering pace, an impressive step and an eye for a gap that has seen him make some of the best breaks in this years Six Nations.

14.Anthony Watson

Watson still has some development to do, however what he has shown ball in hand has been enough to get England fans off their seats on several occasions.

13.Jonathan Joseph

Joseph has been absolutely prolific this year and continues to make line breaks and find space where others would struggle.

12.Wesley Fofana

Fofana has struggled to make an impressions this year due to stagnant French tactics, however he possesses the talent to do much more given the opportunity.

11.Simon Zebo

Zebo is another player who has been limited by structured game plans, however given space to run he can cause defences all kinds of trouble.

10.Finn Russell

Russell may not be the most consistent of fly halves however he’s not afraid to try anything and has got the Scottish back line playing some nice rugby.

9.Rhys Webb

Webb has really upped the tempo for the Welsh backline and scored some pretty impressive solo tries by spotting gaps in defences.

8.Sergio Parisse

Parisse remains one of the most impressive back row forwards in world rugby and is the beating heart of the Italian site.

7.Justin Tipuric

Tipuric may not have had the game time he deserves but he still looks like one of Wales’ most dangerous forwards when given chance.

6.Dave Denton

Denton hasn’t been quite at his best for Scotland this year, however

5.Paul O’Connell

Not normally someone you would associate with exciting rugby, however O’Connell has made a couple of nice line breaks and offloads during this years Six Nations.

4.Courtney Lawes

Lawes may only have played one game for England so far this year, however during that performance he put in one hell of a shift.

3.Samson Lee

There have been a lack of stand out tightheads this year, however Lee has probably stood out above the others thus far.

2.Tom Youngs

Youngs has spent this year replacing Hartley off the bench, however when he has entered the action you can see his old centre instincts taking over with the lines he runs.

1.Jack McGrath

McGrath has once again ensured Ireland haven’t felt the loss of Cian Healy too keenly as he’s put in a series of big shifts in the loose and in the set piece.

  1. Nowell over Watson (most line breaks in 6N in only 2 games, while playing in the same team as Watson). Seymour over Zebo (again plenty of line breaks, plus always looking for the interception). Ford over Russell (most assists and most tries from fly-half, nobody else comes close). Anybody over Denton (seriously). Can’t really argue too much in the tight 5 as nobody really sets the place alight…
