2015 RBS 6 Nations Rugby Championship Launch 28/1/2015

We’ve selected a Six Nations XV that has at least two players from every side in the tournament included to see what it might look like.

The rules are quite simple, you have to select a minimum of two players from each side, and a maximum of three. To make it a little bit more interesting of the two players selected, one must be in the backs and one must be in the forwards.

Anyway, here’s the team we selected, but feel free to have a go in the comments section yourselves…

15.Stuart Hogg (Sco)

A moment of madness in Scotland’s final game somewhat marred Hogg’s Six Nations last time around but he is still a classy operator at full back.

14.Tommy Bowe (Ire)

Bowe continues to remain a key man out wide for Ireland as they look to retain their Six Nations title and will be hoping for a few more tries.

13.Michelle Campagnaro (Ita)

Italian centre Campagnaro was Italy’s player of the tournament last time round and will be hoping to pick-up where he left off last time round.

12.Jamie Roberts (Wal)

There was an argument here for Wesley Fofana, however Roberts form, particularly for Racing Metro, dictates he deserves his spot.

11.Teddy Thomas (Fra)

Thomas is emerging into a key man for France already having scored four tries in two games and will be hoping for a few more during the Six Nations.


10.George Ford (Eng)

Ford looked confident and assured for England during the Autumn Internationals and now has a big chance to impress during the Six Nations.

9.Conor Murray (Ire)

Ireland scrum half Murray has developed into one of the very best scrum halves in the northern hemisphere of late.

8.Sergio Parisse (Ita)

Parisse continues to be the heartbeat of the Italian national side and would have no trouble walking into most teams in the world.

7.Sam Warburton (Wal)

Wales captain Warburton has bounced back from various criticisms levelled at him to show his quality this season.

6.Thierry Dusautoir (Fra)

The France captain was a huge miss for Les Bleus this time last year and will be a key player this time around.


5.Paul O’Connell (Ire)

O’Connell is one of those players who continues to get better with age. Now captaining Ireland he is a real driving force in that impressive pack.

4.Jonny Gray (Sco)

The younger of the Gray brothers, Jonny has impressed since bursting onto the international scene last year.

3.Samson Lee (Wal)

Lee has been a revelation for Wales over the last 12 months and is now the cornerstone of their improving scrum.

2.Dylan Hartley (Eng)

Although Hartley may not be everyone’s (or anyone’s) favourite player, there’s no doubting his talent when he keeps himself together.

1.Joe Marler (Eng)

In the absence of Corbisiero and Vunipola, Marler has excelled at loosehead for England and looks likely to retain his spot for the opener.
