Lots of speculation and opinion in the papers, what do you all think is the best team out of those selected?

I think is go for:
Vunipola
Best
Furlong
Lawes
Itoje
O'Brien
Tipuric
Vunipola
Murray
Sexton
Williams
Farrell
Joseph
North
Hogg

Not sure about the wings though...

Very similar! I have Owens ahead of Best and Stander has to start in front of O'Brien. Warburton will play 7 if fit and in any kind of form. I want Lawes, but suspect he'll go AWJ.

Left wing is up for grabs (North on the right, but could be any of Williams, Watson, Nowell or Seymour on the left) and I reckon he'll play Davies at 13, although he should play JJ.

I think my 23 (from memory of who was selected) would be something like:

Vunipola
Owens
Furlong
Itoje
Kruis
Stander
Tipuric
Vunipola
Murray
Sexton
Nowell
Farrell
Joseph
Seymour
Hogg

Marler
Best
Sinckler
AWJ
Faletau
Webb
Daly
North

5, 7, 11 and 14 are the main positions I had to think about.

Again, with these selections, I have to choose who I think should play and who I think will play. It's actually much less of a deal with the starting XV and match day squad as opposed to the squad as a whole.

You know that Warburton and AWJ will feature regardless of warm up match form. Same goes for Sexton and Farrell. Maybe AWJ might only make the bench, but he'll be in the match day squad, when he shouldn't be on tour, no matter how much Greenwood raves about "the unquantifiable qualities, guts and heart alone, superlatives, hype, Maidenhead, etc"

It would not surprise me in the least to see Halfpenny start ahead of Hogg.

I think the team will be:

Vunipola
Best
Furlong
Itoje
AWJ
Stander
Warburton
Vunipola
Murray
Sexton
Williams
Farrell
Davies
North
Halfpenny/Hogg

McGrath, George, Sinckler, Lawes, Faletau, Webb, Joseph, Daly

I think it should be:

Marler
Best
Furlong
Itoje
Kruis
Stander
O'Mahoney/Warburton (can't decide)
Vunipola
Murray
Sexton
Williams
Farrell
Joseph
North
Hogg

Vunipola, George, Sinckler, Lawes, O'Brien, Webb, Daly, Williams

Can't believe people would start Rory best.
