SECOND-ROW:

  • 4. Maro Itoje (England)
  • 5. Alun Wyn Jones (Wales)

Robshaw said: “Maro Itoje at 4. World class player, has big moments in games. One I’m not sure with, I’m going to go Alun Wyn Jones at 5. I’m going to make him captain as well. The way he led Wales in the Six Nations, the games he’s played, the leader he is.”
