This Rugby World Cup ‘Rejected XV’ would beat most teams on the planet

4. Richie Gray (Scotland): Despite regaining his fitness, didn’t want to go to Japan unless he was a key part of Gregor Townsend’s plans.

5. Devin Toner (Ireland): Regardless of the reasoning for his omission, it’s disappointing nonetheless for Toner, who had previously been an integral part of the Irish forward pack, but missed out as a result of Jean Kleyn’s ability to cover the back row.


6. Chris Robshaw (England): Lewis Ludlam’s selection ahead of the 66-cap veteran may surprise some. At 33 years of age, this will surely spell the end of the former captain’s international career.

7. Jordi Murphy (Ireland)

8. Facundo Isa (Argentina): The powerhouse Toulon ball carrier was a shock non-selection as coach Mario Ledesma favoured Argentina-based players. The Pumas are blessed with quality loose forwards but this was a strange call.
