An England team of rugby players capable of bringing the World Cup home

An England football team of rugby players capable of bringing the World Cup home

Ahead of England’s clash with Colombia tonight, the RUCK team has put their heads together to create a football side of rugby players that would without a doubt bring the World Cup home…

Or maybe not…

Take a look at our selection below:


Goalkeeper: Mike Brown

His safe hands under the high ball would make him the perfect man to come and collect crosses.


Right-back: Jack Nowell 

Steely, speedy and calm on the ball.


Centre-back: Joe Launchbury (Captain)

Physically imposing and more than capable of marshalling a well-organised defence.


Centre-back: Courtney Lawes

The position where you need a defender who can tackle HARD. Nuff said.

Left-back: Tom Curry

His defensive qualities would allow Jonny May to roam forward and attack.


Right-wing: Owen Farrell 

We needed him on the pitch to take the set pieces. The David Beckham of our team.
