“Itoje drops out” – How the World XV looks following the 2022 summer internationals

The 2021/22 rugby season has officially came to a close following the summer internationals.

Naturally, picking a World XV subjective exercise and there are no wrong or right answers, so be sure to let us know your opinion on the best XVI of the 2021/22 season once you’ve looked over ours.

Nevertheless, while it ultimately comes down to the opinion of yours truly, rest assured that the selections will be informed by statistics, the eye test and relative importance to their team overall.

We look at the official World Rugby XV from December and analyse what changes need to be made to bring it up to date.
