Now that the dust has settled in the southern hemisphere, we have chosen our XV of the Rugby Championship.
Two upset results were the stories of the final round as while New Zealand had already locked up the trophy for another year, South Africa’s 27-25 victory on Saturday landed a psychological blow to their main rival ahead of the World Cup.
Later on, Argentina claimed a debut win in the competition as they beat Australia 21-17 so it was far from a dull finale to 2014’s tournament, with many players throwing their hands up for our XV.
In the end we settled on five All Blacks, four Springboks and Pumas and two Wallabies.
