Six Nations 2011 – Team of the Tournament

It’s that time of year again when spring seems pleasantly near and the blood and thunder of rugby weekends is a vanishing memory. So before they fade away I want to name my Six Nations 2011 Team of the Tournament. Some players are “out of position” in my selection but have played where I have selected them at international level in other games. No reasons or excuses will be provided – but all comments are welcome.
