England lock Maro Itoje selects incredible Nigeria XV

HALFBACKS:

10. Marcus Watson: The Wasps winger is doing a job for the team at fly-half. Since joining the black and golds, Watson has claimed a number of memorable tries, including a first-quarter double at Bath Rugby in December 2017, and another sublime brace v Leicester Tigers in March 2019.

9. Callum Watson: The third and final Watson who made Itoje’s selection. The playmaker, who like his brothers began his career at London Irish, now plays for Chinnor RFC following a stint with Loughborough Students.


FRONT-ROW:

1. Beno Obano: The powerhouse cousin of Itoje possesses the skills and physical ability to demonstrate game breaking moments that can both create points for Bath Rugby and to deny tries for the opposition. His power and agility with ball in hand add to the repertoire of threats within the forward pack. If not for a few serious injuries, he’d definitely have won England caps.

2. Gabriel Oghre: The hooker made his Premiership debut in 2018/19 off the bench for Wasps against Saracens and soon made the step up to the first-team squad for the 2019/20 season. A very exciting prospect.

3. Biyi Alo: After initially joining Wasps as injury cover during the 2018/19 campaign, the giant tighthead-prop impressed during his short time to earn a permanent deal with the Club from the summer of 2019.
