1. Alberto de Marchi, Italy
A fine performance from the Treviso unit saw Alberto de Marchi storm to 46 carrying metres at the Stade de France this weekend, just one metre less than Sergio Parisse.
Granted, that tally came from one lung-busting run in particular, but the prop was a menace in the loose at times and helped out with a mobile eight tackles, too.
2. Rory Best, Ireland
Ireland lost just the one line-out at the Aviva Stadium this weekend, and it was thanks to another assured outing from Rory Best that such statistics were possible.
Ireland's hooker made run attempts, but his tackling tally of nine outshines most in terms of open-play contribution.
3. Martin Castrogiovanni, Italy
For all the doubts that there might be in certain aspects of this Italian squad, Martin Castrogiovanni is one of those few names that the national team need not hold much concern with—and this weekend showed why.
The veteran gave Thomas Domingo a tough time of things at the set piece, winning penalties here and there, as well as getting about the pitch with a decent tally of seven tackles.
4. Joshua Furno, Italy
The third of our Italian trio to make this weekend's pack, Joshua Furno had a fine outing in the Azzurri's loss to France, despite the damning result that his side were subjected to.
Flawless in the line-out, two defenders beaten, two forced turnovers and 11 tackles to his name, there wasn't much else that Jacques Brunel could have asked of the 24-year-old individually.
5. Courtney Lawes, England
Ever growing into his role as one of England's most reliable figures, Courtney Lawes makes another appearance in the team of the week for his glowing game against the Scots.
With a frame like his, it's encouraging to see the English giant spoiling opposition ball as much as Lawes did in the Murrayfield line-out, denying the hosts even the slightest of advantages on the way to a 20-0 triumph.
