Ireland dominate the official RBS Six Nations Team of the Week for the second week running.
Joe Schmidt’s men bounced back from their opening day defeat to Scotland with a resounding nine-try, 63-10 win over Italy on Saturday.
The Irish have five players in the XV, more than any other nation, with four backs and one forward in the shape of hat-trick hero CJ Stander, who became the first forward in Six Nations history to grab a hat-trick.
Paddy Jackson makes the team for the second week running as does Scotland’s Stuart Hogg and France’s Louis Picamoles. It’s also Stander’s second week running in the official team.
Both Irish wingers- Simon Zebo and Keith Earls, also make the XV.
