England North vs England South: Which all-time England XV would come out on top?!
Just out of interest we’ve put three England XV’s together, splitting players into two camps; North and south based on where they were born.
We’ve already done this with current players but now we’re having a go at ALL-TIME XV’s.
Take a look at each selection and then vote which team you think would triumph if there was a mini-tournament.
This is just a bit of fun.
