This could be England in 2019

With the start of the premiership season having put the 2015 world cup well and truly out of our minds, it is probably time to start building up the hype for the 2019 rugby world cup in Japan. So to start the maul rolling, groans are noted, I have been thinking about what the match day 23 might look like at the start of the tournament.

There are some slightly wild selections but I can see this team playing the high tempo skill based game England will need to be playing. Below are my thoughts and I would love to hear what yours are, as well as your potential teams.

  1. Kieran Brookes
    2. Jamie George
    3. Mako Vunipola
    4. Joe Launchbury
    5. Courtney Lawes
    6. Maro Itoje
    7. Matt Kvesic
    8. Nathan Hughes
    9. Joe Simpson
    10. George Ford
    11. Jack Nowell
    12. Henry Slade
    13. Jonathan Joseph
    14. Anthony Watson
