Vote for your Autumn Nations Series Player of the Week – Round 4

The Autumn Nations Series has come to a thrilling conclusion after four weeks of fascinating action with the final instalment proving to be a real thriller.

Italy defeated Uruguay to earn their first win since the 2019 Rugby World Cup, while Scotland made it three wins from four with a 29-20 win over Japan at BT Murrayfield.

England avenged their 2019 Rugby World Cup final defeat, beating South Africa 27-26 at Twickenham, before Wales recorded their own one-point win with a 29-28 victory over Australia in Cardiff.

France then defeated New Zealand 40-25, defeating the All Blacks for the first time since 2009, before Ireland ended the Autumn Nations Series with a record 53-7 win over Argentina at the Aviva Stadium.

Now it’s time for you to have your say on who was the standout player from the weekend. Pick your Player of the Week from the four nominees below.

Freddie Steward (England)

What an Autumn Nations Series it’s been for Freddie Steward.

The 20-year-old received his second Player of the Match award in two weeks for his performance in England’s sublime win over the Springboks at Twickenham.

The full-back scored his second England try in the first half and was a rock under the high ball all afternoon as Eddie Jones’ men got revenge for their final defeat to the world champions.

Peato Mauvaka (France)

It was another star-making turn from Peato Mauvaka in Paris on Saturday evening.

The 24-year-old received the Player of the Match award in France’s phenomenal 40-25 win over New Zealand.

The hooker scored a brace of tries – to take his tally to five in three games – and was a fierce carrier as France recorded their first win against the All Blacks in Paris in nearly 50 years.

Romain Ntamack (France)

Romain Ntamack was in inspirational form against New Zealand, producing a series of jaw-dropping moments to help the home side secure a statement win against the All Blacks.

Back in his more traditional fly-half role, Ntamack was unlucky not to receive the Player of the Match award himself in what was arguably his best performance in the famous blue shirt.

His first-half try was a thing of beauty while his break from inside France’s own in-goal area was a moment of skill that very few players have in their locker. A sensational performance.

Henry Slade (England)

Henry Slade has hardly put a foot wrong in November and he was at it again on Saturday.

His two try assists really caught the eye in what was a classy performance at Twickenham.

Slade’s pass to put Steward into space for his try was simply delectable and his wide ball to Manu Tuilagi for England’s first was efficiently executed under pressure, too.
