A Combined England-Ireland XV As Voted By You

With England and Ireland both announcing their starting XVs for Saturday’s clash at Twickenham on Thursday, we thought it would be interesting to see who would win out on a head-to-head basis. 

Today, we asked you to vote in a poll to choose your combined XV based on the starting sides announced by Eddie Jones and Joe Schmidt.

In some instances, the results were one-sided while in others, it was neck and neck.
