The Telegraph have named their World XV following the conclusion of the 2021 Autumn Nations Series.
- 15. Freddie Steward (England)
- 14. James Lowe (Ireland)
- 11. Will Jordan (New Zealand)
THEY WROTE: “What a talent. Already looks like a 50-capper at a minimum for England and with his frame and confidence under the high ball is proving to be a huge asset.”
- 13. Henry Slade (England)
- 12. Damian de Allende (South Africa)
THEY WROTE: “Slade came into the autumn in good form for Exeter and has kicked on now at Test level, producing a superb passing display against South Africa. England’s key architect in their win over the world champions.”
