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.
