Just One Irish Player Makes BBC Six Nations Team Of The Week

Just One Irish Player Makes BBC Six Nations Team Of The Week
By Gary Reilly Updated

Now before the accusations start, this isn't a whinging 'why don't you like us' kind of article. It's simply interesting to see how other eyes viewed the Six Nations action.

Jeremy Guscott picked his team of the weekend for the BBC this morning and despite the fact that Ireland maintained a 100% record with a win over France, Joe Schmidt's men have less representatives in the team than each of the other five nations.

Johnny Sexton takes his position at 10, and was named player of the week by Guscott, but there's no place for the likes of Sean O'Brien or Paul O'Connell, while Robbie Henshaw was edged out by Alex Dunbar of Scotland and Luca Morisi of Italy.

Ireland weren't at our best on Saturday evening by any stretch but should there be more credence given to the individual cogs in a rounded team performance as opposed to single shining lights in a heavy defeat such as Parisse, Biagi and Morisi?
