Fantasy Six Nations 2012: The Rugby Blog’s Teams

The Friday afternoon before the RBS 6 Nations gets underway is always a busy time in offices everywhere, as thousands of people tinker with their fantasy teams.

Here at The Rugby Blog, we thought we’d help out – or possibly lead you completely astray – by publishing the 15 names we’ve selected, putting our credibility firmly on the line.

As you can see from the table below, a few conclusions can be made. What’s clear is that Paul O’Connell and Sergio Parisse are very popular choices up front, as are Jonny Sexton and Maxime Medard in the backs.

What’s also clear is that I’m going to win (Hutch) and that Christine might want to rethink now that all the teams have been announced.

  1. I’m surprised that noone picked Trinh-Duc. He’s been in mighty form for Montpellier and he has shown that he can operate on Test level.
    The backrow is arguably the hardest position to choose, there are so many quality players in that position, it’s crazy!

      1. That was my problem when I finished my optimum XV, I had no dedicated kicker with Murray and Trinh-duc at 9/10. Quality-wise the best, but not to win this game, so I buckled and set Yachvilli with Sexton there. Should give me a good haul off points just from the kicks :)
