15: Stuart Hogg (Scotland)

14: Anthony Watson (England)

“I’d definitely have Watson. He’s great under the high ball, has unbelievable feet and would be outstanding on hard South African grounds.”

13: Jonathan Davies (Wales)

“He’d be my pick, if fit. If he’s not, it’s likely to be Henry Slade,” 

12: Manu Tuilagi (England)

“At 12, I have to go with Manu. There’s such power there. And you’ll need that.”

11: Liam Williams (Wales)
