Three England stars named in the Autumn Nations Series Team of the Week

It’s that time of the week when we collect our dream side of the weekend’s action, here it is RUCK Fall Nations Series Team of the week for the second round:

Fall Nations Series Team of the Week: Round 2

BACK-THREE:

Fullback: Freddie Steward (England)

Telegraph 9/10: “Matsushima left the door open and Steward went in for the initial attempt. Becoming a great attacker, a kick return that led to Smith’s attempt. Brilliant in the air, the best player in England right now?

Winger: Ange Capuozzo (Italy)

Telegraph 9/10: “He scored a couple of tries as Italy earned a historic first victory over Australia on try number 19 in Florence on Saturday.”

Winger: Sekou macalou (France)

Planet Rugby 8/10: “The flanker was excellent on the wing and showed his versatility,”



CENTERS:

Outside-centre: George North (Wales)

Wales online 8/10: “Fired from start to finish. North stopped a dangerous early foray by the Cougars and went on to make a series of tackles. There was also a huge run from the No. 13 from Wales that must have shaken every bone in Santiago Carreras’s body.”

Inside-centre: Owen Farrell (England)

Telegraph 8/10: “The quick combination with Smith led to Steward’s attempt. A good fumble led to Porter’s first down and set up Porter’s second with a left-footed drive behind. A hammering tackle.
