Maro Itoje tries his hand as a selector, picking a dream team

The Maro Itoje dream team of rugby players past and present could compete with any team from any generation of rugby.

The England forward recently made his star-studded selection on a zoom call.

Itoje has been mentored by some of the best players of all-time, won everything there is to win with Saracens while also starring for both England and the British & Irish Lions.

Without much thought, this is the team he’d pick. It’s a terrific selection.

DID YOU KNOW? Maro got a rugby scholarship to London Harrow school when he was 11. He then studied for a Politics degree at the School of Oriental and African Studies in Bloomsbury, London at the same time as starting his rugby career.
