* Let us know what you think!

Six Nations – Team of the Tournament 2019:

15 – Liam Williams (Wales)
With Leigh Halfpenny out, Liam Williams managed the game well from the back throughout the tournament. He was secure under the high ball and dangerous when running at opponents.
Bubbling under: Stuart Hogg (Scotland)

14 – Jack Nowell (England)
He is quick on his feet out wide and his pace and strength gave opponents plenty of problems.
Bubbling under: George North (Wales)

13 – Jonathan Davies (Wales)
His experience in the midfield was vital to the Welsh cause. He made excellent decisions on defence and attack and he showed why he is one of the best runners in the game.
Bubbling under: Henry Slade (England)

12 – Hadleigh Parkes (Wales)
He put his body on the line in the midfield throughout the tournament. He gave the Welsh some grunt on defence and he was not afraid to spill some blood doing it.
Bubbling under: Manu Tuilagi (England)

11 – Jonny May (England)
The tournament’s top try-scorer this year. He is elusive with ball in hand and he was a constant threat in the air as well.
Bubbling under: Josh Adams (Wales)

10 – Gareth Anscombe (Wales)
He secured his place as Wales’ first-choice flyhalf for the upcoming World Cup. His game management was outstanding, especially in the difficult conditions against Ireland in Cardiff.
Bubbling under: Owen Farrell (England)

9 – Conor Murray (Ireland)
He showed why he is the best in the business in his position with great vision and decision making in pressure situations.
Bubbling under: Gareth Davies (Wales)

8 – Louis Picamoles (France)
His work rate for France was unbelievable and he is still one of the hardest players to bring down when he is at full tilt.
Bubbling under: Billy Vunipola (England)

7 – Justin Tipuric (Wales)
He was a menace at the breakdowns and a complete monster with his defensive work.
Bubbling under: Braam Steyn (Italy)

6 – Peter O’Mahoney (Ireland)
He worked tirelessly in all areas of the game for his team and his leadership abilities also helped his team in pressure situations.
Bubbling under: Josh Navidi (Wales)

5 – Alun Wyn Jones (Wales)
He is a legend for Wales, and he was immense during this year’s tournament. He led by example up front and inspired his team to some famous victories.
Bubbling under: Felix Lambey (France)

4 – Joe Launchberry (England)
A big physical presence up front for England. His work in the set pieces was also impressive.
Bubbling under: James Ryan (Ireland)

3 – Kyle Sinckler (England)
He does more work than most props around the field. He carried the ball strongly, defended well and was solid in the scrums.
Bubbling under: Demba Bamba (France)

2 – Jamie George (England)
After his performances this year, there is certainly no way back for Dylan Hartley to be England’s first choice. George ticked a lot of boxes in different areas.
Bubbling under: Ken Owens (Wales)

1 – Cian Healy (Ireland)
He was a beast in the scrums and he did a lot of good carrying for his team as well.
Bubbling under: Rob Evans (Wales)
