Ireland’s Tadhg Furlong has been named in World Rugby’s official Dream Team of the Year following another stellar run of form for the Leinster tighthead.
Furlong is the only Irishman to make the cut with England, Scotland, and Wales only having one representative each also in, Maro Itoje, Stuart Hogg, and Wyn Jones respectively.
The Springboks dominate the selection with Malcolm Marx, Eben Etzebeth, Siya Kolisi, Makazole Mapimpi, and Lukanyo Am. France’s Antoine Dupont is the only member of Les Blues to make the cut with the rest of the team made up of Wallabies and All Blacks.
Breakthrough Player of the Year Will Jordan is on one wing with the likes of Ardie Savea, Beauden Barrett and Michael Hooper also included, along with World Player of the Year nominee, Samu Kerevi.
