Two Irish Players Selected In Midi Oympique’s Team Of The Six Nations

The best of the best.

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.
