ESPN Unveils All Sports Fantasy Rugby XV


ESPN have put together an all sports fantasy rugby XV and it makes for some entertaining reading.

The sports giants have taken some of sport’s biggest names including the likes of Conor McGregor, Usain Bolt and Cristiano Ronaldo and given them positions if they were professional rugby players. It seems however they didn’t do their research, and made a few questionable decisions.

McGregor at seven? We don’t think so. It also appears with images they’ve provided that he’ll also be place-kicking even though he’s in the back-row, but we’ll forgive them considering his MMA kicking prowess.


They’ve also gone for a formidable duo in the second-row with LeBron James and Anthony Joshua packing down behind the front-row. There’s also some serious pace and skill on the wings with Cristiano Ronaldo on the left wing and the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt on the right wing.

Check it out below and let us know what you think.
