Many 'teams of the week' have Robshaw at 8, which is ridiculous until you try and work out who else it should be. He was terrific on Saturday, but he's not the 8 we were looking for..

Eh? No Farrell. He was the player of the weekend even though Brown had a good game. How he didn’t get MOTM is crazy. His performance is probably already the best of the tournament.

You might call me biased too but Launchbury was the best prop on the weekend by far.

10/12 axis should be Ford-Farrell in everyone's team... that's if they watched that match. Navidi usually moves to 8 when we bring Tips on so he could be an option there. Shingler and Navidi on this form are two of the best flankers in Europe for me. Launchbury and Hill at lock for me. I don't recall anyone standing out at 15 apart from That bald headed English thug.

Minozzi is a decent shout at FB I think. Definitely Farrell even without considering the standard of the opposition.

IMO Ford was great against Italy but was quieter against Wales - Farrell was the one driving the team forward. I know the two of them have to come as a pair generally but this was a team of individual performances.

There was a real lack of any standout 8 this weekend and as Robshaw played a lot of the game at 8 and he had a good game at that, I can see why folk have picked him there.

Heh, he really was that good. In all seriousness O’ve been a huge fan of Launchbury since seeing him on the U20s World Cup. Even back them you could see how good his engine was, how he played tough yet intelligent, had good hands and had the ability to be in the right place at the right time.
