“Controversial” – Mike Brown picks his combined England/Wales XV

MIKE BROWN has picked his combined England/Wales XV ahead of next weekend’s fixture between the two nations.

Brown wrote: “One of my memories of playing against Wales is the ‘combined XV’ articles that would always be churned out on the week of the game.

“They would cherry-pick the best players from both sides. During the Warren Gatland era, it would always be a pretty even split of English and Welsh.

“This Wales team isn’t anywhere near the quality of some of their recent line-ups and England should beat them comfortably at Twickenham.”
