No English Or Scottish In Stephen Ferris' Six Nations Team Of The Tournament

Stephen Ferris has had his go at selecting his Six Nations Team of the Tournament - in one of his regular chats with Balls.ie in association with Ladbrokes - with the big man opting for nine Irishmen.

The rest of the side is made up of French players, with no English or Scottish making the cut.

His front-row sees the obvious choices of Andrew Porter and Dan Sheehan, while Uini Atonio also makes it, despite him missing two matches and the fact that he is barely a 50 minute player.

He selects one of the break out stars of the tournament in Thibaud Flament, with the French second-row slotting in alongside a back-to-his-best James Ryan.


The back-row is an all Irish one, while the half-backs are the unanimous Antoine Dupont and Ferris' 'old pal' Johnny Sexton.

Ferris was also full of praise for French centre Jonathan Danty, picking him alongside Garry Ringrose, despite him only playing the last two matches.

Damian Penaud, Mack Hansen, and Thomas Ramos make up the back-three. Ferris pointed to Hansen's high-ball win over Duhan van der Merwe as a reason why the Scottish winger was not picked, and mentioned Ramos' goal-kicking as one of the main reasons for his selection.
