We’ve put together the Six Nations team of the week based on the ESPN Fantasy Rugby top scorers during week one of the tournament…
Mike Brown – 6pts
A full appearance and a nice chip through for Anthony Watson’s try earns Mike Brown a total of 6 points against Wales.
Anthony Watson – 8pts
The England man chipped in with a try and full appearance to make him the top points scorer out of all players available in the back three.
Dougie Fife – 6pts
Despite only coming on off the bench after an injury to Tommy Seymour, Fife’s try earned him 5 points in addition to his appearance point.
Jonathan Joseph – 8pts
A full 80 minutes and a try from wriggling through the Welsh defence made Joseph one of this weeks top points scorers.
Camille Lopez – 13pts
Lopez’s points from the boot earned France victory over Scotland this weekend and also made him the weeks top points scorer.
Conor Murray – 12pts
Murray was the weekends top points scorer ignoring kicks after picking up a total of 12 points, including five for his try.
Tommy O’Donnell – 8pts
Despite not even being set to start the game, O’Donnell received a last minute start and proceeded to score one of Ireland’s two tries.
Taulupe Faletau – 6pts
Powerful Welsh number 8 Faletau was one of the few stand-outs for Wales after setting up a try off the back of a retreating scrum.
Billy Vunipola – 3pts
The final place in the back row could have gone to one of several players who made a full appearance which earned 3 points.
Dave Attwood – 3 pts
There were no obvious stand-out candidates in the second row points wise so it simply came down to which players made a full appearance.
Yoann Maestri – 3pts
As above, with no second row earning more than the points available for a full appearance there were several options in the position.
Euan Murray – 5pts
Murray’s pass to set up Dougie Fife’s try sees him become the top scoring front row forward of the first weekend.
Richard Hibbard – 3pts
A full 80 minutes for Richard Hibbard saw him earn the maximum 3 points for his appearance and means he makes our top three.
Dan Cole – 2pts
The remaining position in the front row could have gone to one of several players who all earned 2 points for a partial appearance.
