Ben Ryan: Elliot Daly would make a World XV at 13

November 26, 2018

The Autumn Internationals have ended with stellar campaigns for Ireland and Wales, England unearthed some raw talent, and Scotland will have their heads high too. With Brian Moore to discuss the final weekend of action is Telegraph writer Mick Cleary.

Brian and Mick discuss the potential of a Joe Cockanasiga, Ben Te'o and Manu Tuilagi backline for England, the emergence of Kyle Sinckler, and Mark Wilson's sensational campaign.

Joining them to discuss England is Ben Ryan, twice World Champion and Olympic Gold medal winning coach, who says Elliot Daly needs to be playing at outside centre and is the best in the world there. Ben also tells us more about Cockanasiga, they discuss who England should be playing at wing, and we also tip our caps to Fiji's stunning victory over France.

With the announcement that Joe Schmidt is leaving Ireland after the World Cup, Joe and Brian discuss whether we are going to see an Andy Farrell and Stuart Lancaster coaching set up in the future, and they discuss whether Ireland can cope without Johnny Sexton in their ranks.

Hear from Scott Hastings, former Scotland and Lions centre, whose nephew Adam Hastings faced Argentina at the weekend as part of a trialled axis with Finn Russell at 12 as Scotland ground out a victory over Los Pumas.

Another former Lion joins the show in the shape of Wales' number 8 Michael Owen to discuss his former side's fantastic form and which new players we should be looking out for in the future.

Plus, Maggie Alphonsi updates on the Red Roses' final match against Ireland and Gavin Mairs dials in from Monaco to tells us about the World Rugby Awards.
