rbs 6 nations

We pick out the top performers from round three of the RBS 6 Nations and select out best XV from this weekends action…

15. Stuart Hogg

After a disappointing season to date, Hogg turned it back on against Italy and was heavily involved in all three of Scotland’s tries.

14. Tommy Seymour

Seymour has really nailed down his spot for Scotland with another impressive attacking display out wide for Scotland which also included a try.

13. Michele Campagnaro

Campagnaro is without doubt Italy’s most talented attacking player who is a constant threat with ball in hand whilst also remaining solid in defence.

12. Stuart McCloskey

McCloskey marked his international debut with an impressive performance where he was impressive in defence and used his power going forwards.

11. Anthony Watson

The England winger has an incredible ability to find space in close situations and kept Ireland’s defence on their toes with some impressive steps.


10. Dan Biggar

The Welsh fly half put in a dominant display in the 10 shirt kicking well and controlling the game effectively to keep France on the back foot.

9. Greig Laidlaw

Laidlaw got Scotland playing in the right areas of the pitch against Italy and provided some fantastic ball to bring the backs into the game.

8. Sergio Parisse

Despite being on the losing side (again), Parisse had one of his best games for Italy in years and proved how vital he is to the team.

7. Josh van der Flier

Another Ireland debutant who made an impact against England, van der Flier was everywhere putting in tackles and making a nuisance of himself at the breakdown.

6. Billy Vunipola

It was impossible to leave Vunipola out after his man of the match performance against Ireland where his ball carrying was unparalleled.


5. Bradley Davies

The Welsh lock came back into the side and made sure he will be seriously considered for another start after an impressive display.

4. Maro Itoje

In his first start for England, Itoje was everywhere around the pitch, carrying hard, making tackles, disrupting line outs and winning turnovers.

3. WP Nel

The Scottish tighthead was dominant in the scrum and provided his backs with a fantastic platform for them to play off.

2. Guilhelm Guirado

The French captain was one of the very best players all weekend despite many of his teammates having a pretty poor game.

1. Rob Evans

The Welsh loosehead was dominant in the tight, great around the park and also put in some impressive offloads.
