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
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,”
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.
