    This could be the team of the 5th round but not of the whole tournament in my humble opinion.

    Trinh-Duc performed too well to not make that list. Parks played well, but Trinh-Duc was way above him, imo.
    Hook played well, but no better than BOD or Basta (who, apart from the Scotland match, wasn't too spectacular)

    Not the finest effort from Barnes, maybe he did put team of the tournament in instead of team of the week.

    My team.

    Poitrenaud - didn't actually do a poitrenaud throughout the tournament and offered the best attacking threat from full back as well as being solid at the back.
    Bowe - showed what a class finisher he really is
    Bastareaud - came of age this tournament especially with his performance against Ireland
    Earls - probably the best of the Irish backs, great pace and quality finishing
    Trinh Duc - the most consistent of the fly halves and able to get his back line moving
    Parra - no contest here really, O'Leary had one good game but other than that they were all ****.
    Domingo - dominant loosehead again no contest really.
    Servat - may not have played the full 80 but when you've the quality of Szarewski on the bench you're not going to but what his general play was right up there.
    Mas - dominant French scrum, largely down to the tighthead holding it together.
    Davies - had a cracking tournament, even more impressive considering the personal factors.
    Nallet - brings that needed composure to the French setup
    Dusautoir - quality player, keeps on improving and looks even better now he's leading the team
    Barclay - the whole backrow for Scotland has been outstanding but Barclay for me was the best of the lot.
    Harinordoquy - probably nailed on for player of the tournament after his performances this season.

    just keeping you on your toes. Literally goes without saying that Jauzion was the standout performer.

    I'll just explain some of my choices.

    Front row - bleeding obvious since the French destroyed everyone in the scrum. Ford and Murray had good tournaments as well.

    2nd row - not impressed with anyone here, besides the French and Kellock

    back row - Harinordoquy was the best player of the 6 nations. But Beattie was not so far behind and played really well with his Glasgow colleagues. I picked him to keep this combination together.

    9 - Not impressed with anyone over the course of the tournament - Parra made a lot of poor decisions, Care shone occasionally... but when Canavosio was on the pitch, Italy were noticeably better. Tito Tebaldi has to be the worst scrum half I've seen since Bergamasco.

    10 - Trinh-Duc steered France to a grand slam. Jones played well in patches, as did Parks.

    outside backs - no argument. You could possibly have a think about James Hook, D'Arcy or even McLean... but no one else had that big an impact.

    Well Beattie is the least questionable player in your back row actually although I you pointed out Harinordoquy is better, not by much but better nonetheless. I don't understand why you selected these flankers.

    Because Brown and Barclay both played well in every game...?

    I know Trinh-Duc was good but look who he had playing around him.

    Dan Parks deserves credit where credit is due in my opinion - 3 MOTM performances and he still misses out on a number of your lists.

    We all seem to be in agreement that the front row, fullback and centres belong to the French, the back row to the scots, and the wings to the Irish

    On the more contentious ones, I would say that Davies and Nallet were the outstanding performers in the second row, despite good performances from others. In the halfbacks, I think Canavosio deserves it for managing to shine in a terrible Italian side, and Parks probably pips Trinh-Duc to the 10 spot.

    No English players get a mention, as we only turned up for the last round.
    Only 1 Welshman because they really should have done far better than they did.
