  • 4. Maro Itoje (England)
  • 5. James Ryan (Ireland)

WARBURTON SAID: “What about my captain? It is between Farrell and Itoje. It is such a close call. Both are definite starters (Farrell will be at 12 if not 10) and it makes perfect sense for an Englishman to be captain because most of the squad is likely to be English. I think it will be Farrell but, if I were making the decision, I would pick Itoje.”

DID YOU KNOW? So far in his rugby career, Itoje has won four English Premiership titles with Saracens, three European Rugby Champions Cup titles, and three Six Nations Championship titles
