So far, no Englishman or Welshman has been picked in the RugbyPass Six Nations Championship Dream Team. As it stands the all-star XV, voted for by fans, contains seven Irishmen, five Frenchmen and three Scots.

The absence of Italian faces does not surprise, but the lack of stars from the two World Cup semi-finalists of 2019 does. Even after beating Scotland in round two, Welshmen Wyn Jones, Adam Beard and Liam Williams have all been shunned.

Instead, the dream team bares a full Irish front row and centre pairing, with Andrew Porter, Ronan Kelleher and Tadhg Furlong all making the cut alongside midfielders Bundee Aki and Garry Ringrose.

However, Kelleher may relinquish his spot at hooker, having sustained a shoulder injury which will keep him out for the remainder of the tournament. Maybe Luke Cowan-Dickie can make amends for his intentional knock-on in round one and usurp the injured Irishman.

Antoine Dupont’s selection at nine seems like a foregone conclusion but fans have also judged the French wing pairing of Gabin Villière and Damian Penaud to be tournament toppers.

Perhaps the most controversial selection in the side is Finn Russell, after the flyhalf’s sinbinning helped Wales clinch a hard-fought victory over Scotland. Even with all the flair, is it time to consider Romain Ntamack or Marcus Smith as alternatives?

Everyone is given the chance to select players they think have performed the best throughout this year’s Six Nations, and those with the most votes will make the dream team.

Participants can change their vote at any time up until the end of the final matchday, at which point the RugbyPass Six Nations Championship Dream Team will be crowned.
