A Premier League XV – an international rugby team made up of footballers
Lock: James Collins – Wales
West Ham’s Welsh centre-back is the perfect second row, and not simply because he’s good in the air. He’s also Welsh, meaning he both looks and sounds like a rugby player.
Lock: Andy Carroll – England
Did you REALLY think we’d leave Carroll out of a football-based rugby team?
Flanker: Paul Dummett – Wales
The position where you need a defender who can tackle HARD. Nuff said.
Flanker: James Milner – England
The role – breaking up play, making life difficult, stopping the opposition – the Liverpool man was born to play.
Number eight: Ashley Williams – Wales
Good ball control married with power: who else would you want at the back of your scrum? The closest thing we could find to Taulupe Faletau.
