Six Nations 2024: Team of the Tournament

As the dust settles on a thrilling final round of the 2024 Six Nations, here’s our team of the tournament in all its glory.

Featuring six players from champions Ireland and three Italians, all of the other nations are also represented after impressing over the last few weeks.

1. Andrew Porter

Starting in the front-row, Ireland prop Porter enjoyed another outstanding Six Nations campaign.

Solid in the set-piece and scoring a crucial try in the 17-13 win over Scotland in the final game, the Leinster star earns the first spot in this team of the tournament.

2. Dan Sheehan

Finishing joint-top tryscorer with five at this year's Six Nations, Ireland hooker Sheehan gets the No.2 jersey.

Performing well in the set-piece and able to pop up for carries all over the field, Sheehan is making a strong claim for a starting role with the British & Irish Lions for their tour of Australia next year.

3. Tadhg Furlong

Completing an all-Irish front-row, Furlong enjoyed another excellent Six Nations championship this year.

Getting through plenty of the unseen work, while being rock solid in the Irish scrum, Furlong gets the nod at tighthead.

4. Daffyd Jenkins

While Wales had a Six Nations to forget, there were a handful of individuals who can come out of the competition with their heads held high, including skipper Jenkins.

Completing 79 tackles during the tournament, only one player made more than the Welsh second-row, who looks to have a bright future ahead of him.

5. Tadhg Beirne

The fourth Irish forward to make this team, Beirne was another colossal figure in the Ireland pack this year.

No player made more than the Munster lock's three lineout steals during the competition, and he was also instrumental at the breakdown for his side.

6. Alex Mann

Another Welshman who was a bright spark in an otherwise disappointing tournament, Mann was a breath of fresh air in the back-row.

Scoring tries against Scotland and England in the opening two rounds of the competition, Mann makes the cut for one of the flanker positions.

7. Michele Lamaro

Italy’s talisman guided his country to their best points tally in a Six Nations, Lamaro was truly outstanding for the Azzurri.

Finishing as the tournament’s top tackler with an astonishing 103 through the five rounds, Lamaro makes the cut and gets the armband for this team.

8. Ben Earl

A standout performer for England this season, Earl is growing into a real Test-match animal.

Strong at the breakdown but with gas to go in open play and hands to boot, Saracens and England have a real talent on their hands with Earl.

9. Jamison Gibson-Park

A player who keeps Ireland ticking and was instrumental in their title success again this season, Gibson-Park earns the No.9 jersey.

No player provided more than Gibson-Park’s three try assists and the Leinster star completed the most passes during the tournament with 333.

10. Thomas Ramos

Despite France being hit-and-miss through the tournament, Les Bleus still managed to finish second and have Ramos to thank for that.

Kicking a match-winning penalty from the halfway line in the 33-31 win over England, Ramos finished the Six Nations’ as top point-scorer this season with 63.

11. James Lowe

Rated as one of the best wingers in the world, Lowe added four tries to his Ireland tally this year.

The Leinster flyer does not only offer tries, as he finished top of the charts with metres carried with 478.

12. Tommaso Menoncello

The first half of an all-Italian centre partnership, Menoncello was a rock in the middle of the backline for the Azzurri.

Putting in a shift time and time again, Menoncello was key in helping Italy to two wins and a draw in this Six Nations.

13. Ignacio Brex

Winner of two man-of-the-match awards during the competition, Brex is a shoo-in for the outside centre position.

The Benetton star has improved with age and the 31-year-old has been key in the turnaround for the Azzurri this year.

14. Duhan van der Merwe

Having to switch to right wing, Scotland’s Van der Merwe makes the cut despite a few quieter games towards the end of the tournament.

The Edinburgh star is selected after finishing joint-top of the try charts with five, including a memorable hat-trick in Scotland’s 30-21 Calcutta Cup win over England.

15. Cameron Winnett

Looking at the stats, Winnett’s efforts in a struggling Welsh side earn him the full-back spot in this team of the tournament.

Making the most carries of any back in the competition with 58, Winnett also finished fourth in the charts for metres carried with 406.5.
