The Irish winger has now reclaimed his spot as the most expensive player in the game after an impressive maiden outing in Rome.

The winger scored a first-half try in the 26-16 win in the Eternal City but was a threat throughout.

He carried for 144 metres in total from his ten carries and, on a more clinical day, could have had a couple more tries as well.

But he still ended up with a round high total of 92.8 points – simply a must-have in your side this weekend.

Not far behind Stockdale in the charts was Keith Earls.

The fellow winger also crossed for a try, albeit from much closer range, in the second half of Ireland’s win on Sunday.

Earls racked up 73 metres in the victory and was equally impressive when he moved into the centres after Bundee Aki’s head injury and ended up with 76.6 points to his name.

Gaël Fickou returned to his more familiar position in midfield this weekend and it made a real difference for France.

He made 15 carries for 54m in the game, 15 tackles as well and was only denied a try by the TMO.

But he was heavily involved in everything that France did well on Saturday against Scotland, to the tune of 64.3 points.

On his first-ever start at fly-half for France, Romain Ntamack looked to the manor born.

His kicking from hand was creative, he tackled everything that moved and he even managed to chip in with a first-half try.

He did not play the full 80 minutes so is leapfrogged by Fickou in the pecking order but his tally of 64.24 points made him a key fantasy addition in week three.

The nightmare of Le Crunch was consigned to history as Yoann Huget came storming back against the Scots.

The winger scored his second try of the Championship, created superbly by Mathieu Bastareaud, and is in fine attacking form.

He also set up Damian Penaud’s score at Twickenham in round two and this week’s tally of 62.39 makes him France’s top points scorer overall in the Championship – just ahead of Louis Picamoles.
