Seven non-Irish players have forced their way into The42’s Six Nations Team of the Week

AT THIS STAGE of the Championship, big performances count for a lot in the chase for the title. So, after a weekend which brought a dominant display from Ireland and stunning away wins for Italy and Wales, we struggled to pick a player from a losing side in our Team of the Week.

In fact, for most positions we couldn’t look beyond the two teams that will do battle in Cardiff when the Six Nations resumes on March 13. Ireland and Wales are bang in form, and that game is set to be a thriller.

Here’s the cream of the crop from this weekend’s international action.
