Eight current players who would be nailed on for England Saxons caps

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.
