“Only two England players” – Ugo Monye picks his controversial World XV

#HALFBACKS:

  • 10. Johnny Sexton
  • 9. Kieran Hardy (Wales)

Monye on Sexton: “Captained Ireland to a series win in New Zealand. Played superbly. His importance and influence is undeniable.”

#FRONT-ROW:

  • 1. Ellis Genge (England)
  • 2. Bongi Mbonambi (South Africa)
  • 3. Trevor Nyakane (South Africa)

Monye on Nyankane: “Tight-head prop in the second Test, loose-head in the third. That is extraordinary versatility and the Springbok scrum was powerful throughout the series. The ever-outstanding Tadhg Furlong is on the bench, meaning we have a trio of Irish front-rowers in reserve, while the likes of Wales’ Dillon Lewis, Scot Zander Fagerson and England’s Will Stuart all get a nod.”
