Ellis Genge and Maro Itoje will add plenty of power to the Wales legend’s XV.

Both have been selected at the cost of 15.0 and 18.0 stars respectively.

They are joined by another powerhouse in the form of centre Manu Tuilagi.

He looks set to cause some serious problems for the Pumas defence having been purchased for 17.0 stars.

Freddie Steward is the fourth member of Jones’ squad included in Warburton’s XV after the 21-year-old impressed during his first year of international rugby and he is available for 16.0 stars.

New Zealand are also well represented in Warburton’s team, with three players included.

There are two All Blacks in Warburton’s pack, with Samisoni Taukei’aho, available for just 12.0 stars, starting at hooker.

Three Barrett brothers will start for the All Blacks when New Zealand face Wales at Principality Stadium, but Warburton has made do with just one.

Scott Barrett has been put in the team after also being valued at 12.0 stars.

However, Warburton has not been so frugal with his third and final All Black, with Rieko Ioane included in the centres for 18.0 stars.

Warburton has also gone for three players from Andy Farrell’s high-flying Ireland squad.

In the forwards, Tadhg Furlong is as expensive as you can get at 16.0 stars, but that hasn’t stopped him from being included in the XV.

Tadhg Beirne also has an eye-watering price tag at 17.0 stars, but he has still been selected by the 34-year-old.

Johnny Sexton completes Warburton’s Irish contingent, and you can have him in your side if you are willing to part ways with 19.0 stars.

Warburton has picked two players from Wales in his squad, with Tomos Williams starting at scrum-half after being made available for just 13.0 stars.

With a price tag of 18.0 stars, Louis Rees-Zammit is one of the most expensive players in Warburton’s team.

Australia have a player flying the flag in the former Wales captain’s XV.

Michael Hooper will start in the back row after returning to international rugby in last week’s win against Scotland.

He is available for 18.0 stars, while the lone Scot in the side is Hamish Watson, who is valued at 17.0 stars.
