Controversial Pundit Has Picked Two England Players In His Current World XV

Stephen Jones is someone who has often rubbed English rugby fans up the wrong way in the past, hardly being the most complimentary about the team in years gone by.

That is why it was such a surprise to see him two of their stars in his line-up. However, there is now room for Maro Itoje or Tom Curry.

Jones was amongst a number of pundits to pick their current World XV in today’s Sunday Times, also surprisingly selecting no less than seven Ireland players in the side.

Check out his full selection below.
