5. Tom Dunn
As a former prop, Dunn brings his effective scrummaging and ball-carrying to play in his role at hooker. Flirted with an England call-up earlier this year but we think he’d slip straight into our Saxons XV.
6. Calum Green
A totem in the line-out for Newcastle before joining Leicester Tigers, Green topped the Opta stats during the 2017-18 Premiership season for both takes and steals, offering a consistent threat in the set-piece and around the field. He’s unlucky to have not had a sniff at an England call-up.
