Marcus Watson’s dream XV, featuring Mako Vunipola, George Ford and Steffan Armitage

Wasps winger Marcus Watson has selected his dream team in The Rugby Paper – and it is a pretty tasty line-up.


1. Mako Vunipola – “Known as ‘Bacon Ears’. My old housemate is not shy of a KFC. Great carrier, powerful and skilful!”
2. Jamie George – “I know nothing about throwing but I know he is very good at it.”
3. Max Lahiff – “I’ve seen the man bench 200kg at 20 years of age. He looks like a young Arnold!”
4. Will Witty – “The big Yorkshireman is only 21 but he’s already a class player and has the potential to be unreal.”
5. Alex Gray – “He played lock in his early years and hated it, so that’s part of the reason he is here!”
6. Mark Wilson – “Great over the ball with a ridiculous engine.”
7. Steffon Armitage – “Freakishly strong and guaranteed a couple of turnovers every game. Close call with Will Welch.”
8. Chris Hala’ufia – “I’m pretty sure that if I ran straight into him he would end my life early.”
9. Micky Young – “Great feet and, great pass. Great guy off the pitch who enjoys a coffee.”
10. George Ford – “World-class vision and a very special player.”
11. Sailosi Tagicakibau – “During my time at London Irish the man was untouchable.”
12. Owen Farrell – “Like George he’s a great leader. Such a competitor and a world class kicker.”
13. Jonathan Joseph – “Unreal feet, fast, good defender and a great pass.”
14. Sinoti Sinoti – “He’s in a world of his own when he plays well.”
15. Delon Armitage –  “He’s fast and very good under the high ball. He’s also unbelievably competitive.”
