The Team Voted The Greatest England XV
With the 2019 Rugby World Cup now under a year away in Japan, Sky Sports wanted to know what you think the best-ever England XV from the World Cup era is.
And after 30,000 votes, here is the team fans selected. There are one or two surprise inclusions.
Fullback: JASON ROBINSON (94% of the vote)
The speedster was a menace whatever number was on his back, a bewildering opponent, a man seemingly able to sidestep in mid-air, with pace and nerve and vision, tough in the tackle, intelligent in his use of angles and selfless when it came to creating openings for teammates.
Winger: JOSH LEWSEY (56%)
A player reborn after joining the armed forces and playing for Wasps simultaneously; his physical prowess was matched with a determination to constantly improve and a wonderful ability to read the game in front of him.
Centre: JEREMY GUSCOTT (69%)
The Prince of Centres,’ was how Guscott was described by Clive Woodward. And he wasn’t wrong.
