There is still not a single representative from England, Wales or Italy in the fan-voted RugbyPass Six Nations Dream Team, but there is one Englishman who is knocking on the door.

Players from France, Ireland and Scotland have dominated the current 15 – although there is still time to have your say before the voting closes on Sunday.

As the team stands there are six Irishmen, six Frenchmen and three Scots.

The frontrow is made up of Andrew Porter, who bowed out of the tournament injured, France hooker Julian Marchand and Ireland tighthead Tadhg Furlong.

In the second row Cameron Woki is partnered by James Ryan, who won’t feature this weekend after suffering a concussion against England last weekend. Maro Itoje and Tadhg Beirne are still in with a shout of making the final team, although both need a decent late surge.

The back row includes Caelan Doris, Gregory Alldritt and Scotland’s Hamish Watson.

There’s no surprise at number nine, with Antoine Dupont, arguably the world’s greatest player, a shoo-in at nine with no real rivals.

Maybe more surprising considering his so-so form in this year’s Six Nations, Scotland’s Finn Russell manages to hold down the 10 jersey in the Dream Team. He’s beaten off England’s Marcus Smith for the top spot by just four votes.

The centres are an all Irish affair with Bundee Aki and Garry Ringrose the public’s favorites in the midfield, the latter holding off Gael Fickou by just 12 votes.

Gabin Villiére is still holding off the challenge of Duhan van der Merwe, whose tournament came to an end thanks to a red card for Worcester Warriors in the Gallagher Premiership. He has four more votes than the Scot.

Damien Penaud has beaten Scotland’s Darcy Graham to the number 14 jersey, although there’s a relatively modest 22 votes between as it stands.
