Popular French publication Midi Olympique has picked its Six Nations Team of the Tournament with two Irish players selected despite a disappointing championship for the men in green.
Lock James Ryan was one of Ireland’s only consistent performers and has been named in the second-row alongside Wales’ Grand Slam winning captain Alun Wyn Jones, while CJ Stander is selected in the back-row despite missing a chunk of the tournament with a facial injury.
Elsewhere they’ve gone for Owen Farrell over Finn Russell, and Scotland’a Stuart McInally over Wales’ Ken Owens. They’ve also selected Player of the Championship nominees Liam Williams, Josh Adams, Tom Curry, Hadleigh Parkes and Jonny May.
Midi Olympique’s Team Of The Six Nations
15. Liam Williams (Wales)
14. Josh Adams (Wales)
13. Henry Slade (England)
12. Hadleigh Parkes (Wales)
11. Jonny May (England)
10. Owen Farrell (England)
9. Ben Youngs (England)
1. Rob Evans (Wales)
2. Stuart McInally (Scotland)
3. Kyle Sinckler (England)
4. James Ryan (Ireland)
5. Alun Wyn Jones (Wales)
6. Josh Navidi (Wales)
7. Tom Curry (England)
8. CJ Stander (Ireland)
This is the #Midol's team of the tournament. Not the worst I've seen although even with limited options at No.8, I don't see how CJ Stander gets in.
They also named their Player of the Championship: Alun Wyn Jones. Think that one is fair enough. pic.twitter.com/yKDDbZs8fU
