North V South: Summer Series Dream Teams 

After a rollercoaster Summer Series we look back on which  players performed for their nation and compare the difference in three fantasy teams:  a Northern Hemisphere team, a Southern Hemisphere team and a combined team. We also included the brand new trailer for North Vs South Season 2 at the bottom of the article for you to enjoy!

Northern Hemisphere

It has been a tough Summer Series for Northern Hemisphere sides with only England and Scotland coming out on top against their respective sides Australia and Japan. Elsewhere, Wales lost out 3-0 to New Zealand and Ireland were defeated 2-1 to South Africa whilst France drew their series 1-1 with Argentina. This made the teams tough to pick as we couldn’t just pick a full England and Scotland team and instead opted to pick the form players for each nation.
