The BT Sport rugby panel featuring Austin Healey, Ben Kay and Will Fraser are at Kingsholm ahead of tonight’s Aviva Premiership fixture between Gloucester and Saracens.
Ahead of the game it was put to them by host Craig Doyle via a fan on Facebook, which England players they think would potentially make a World XV.
According to Healey, four English players would make the team – Mako Vunipola, Owen Farrell, Maro Itoje and if fit and firing, Billy Vunipola.
“I think three…Mako Vunipola, Owen Farrell and Maro Itoje…. if Billy Vunipola is fit, he would be in too.” Healey said.
What do you think? Is he right? Would any players from Ireland, Scotland or Wales make a World XV? For us Ireland’s Conor Murray no doubt has to be there.
